This book advances knowledge of how the academic field of educational technology and distance education has developed in Canada. It identifies key events and trends to provide new insights into the academic field by focusing on developments in Canada from 1968 to 2006. This book emerged from insights gained from key individuals in the field in Canada and from relevant documentation. This book traces out the development of educational technology in Canada built upon technological innovations achieved in the United States, but with uniquely Canadian characteristics. Interpretations generated from the data analysis suggest that the trend toward online and blended degree program creation in Canada from 2000 to the present offers an important new direction for educational technology program development. Knowledge obtained from this study should prove useful to administrators, researchers, university students studying educational technology, and instructors in educational communications and technology academic programs.
