In this episode, I got to chat with one of the founding fathers and an amazing advocate of Online Learning, Bob Ubell. Bob takes us back in time to where it all began with what we know as Online Learning today. He knew something big was coming and happened to be in the right place at the right time. Bob is a proud fellow of Online Learning Consortium (OLC), and a member of their advisory board. In this episode, he shares all the details of his experiences from Standford to NYU to Steven’s Institute. You can learn more about where to purchase Bob’s books from his website at bobubell.com.
