ABSTRACT
To make sense of MOOCs and understand the evolution of online learning in higher education we must go back to times long before the Internet was invented. Only in this way can we understand the gradual evolution of open, distance and online learning in higher education. We shall look first at the evolution of methods for teaching at a distance and then at how the choice of the content of learning has increased.
