In this episode, Laura Pasquini chats with Alan Levine about Bulletin Board Systems (BBS) and what was going on in the land of learning online in 1994. We reflect back to the time of dial-up internet, the start community interest groups, and the beginnings of how these technologies would have impacted educational technology. What we learned then, that maybe we could be reminded of nowadays.
