Back before the Teaching Centre in the days of the CRDC, even before CAETL, we held an ADETA conference here at the UofL. Our keynote speaker at the time was Tony Bates. He did a fantastic job, and went on to do wonders for the online learning world. A post on his blog today states he is retiring after 45 years of work in this field. Thank you Tony for all your research and contributions. You definitely made an impact.
