Technology and the Changing Educational Landscape

0 Views
03/15/2011

Earlier this evening, I attended a seminar on Austrian economics with Peter Boettke sponsored by Fundacion Bases in Argentina. In addition to just wanting to participate, I wanted to see what it was like to be a member of the audience for something like this as it’s a lot like what I expect my Mises Academy course to be like. It was really amazing: I feel like little, if anything, was lost relative to a real classroom even though the audio was a bit spotty at times. That, though, was an issue with the performance of the technology that can be fixed and not a problem with the online experience itself.

These are heady times in which to live, to be sure, as the Republic of Letters includes anyone with an Internet connection. I can’t believe how much things have changed in just the last five years. How much more will they change in the next five?

Art Carden is assistant professor of economics, Brock School of Business, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama.
