About The Distance Education Clearinghouse

August, 2010

The Distance Education Clearinghouse was launched on the web in 1995. We first appeared as an electronic bulletin board in the 1980s. In the early 1990s, we re-tooled our resources to be available via the gopher protocol (remember the gopher?!). When the web arrived, there were only a dozen or so web sites devoted to distance education and related topics. We were one of them. We were still going strong in 2000 and by 2006, our web site was totally redesigned to accommodate a more robust set of resources and added opportunities to suggest new content.

That was then. Because of staffing changes and a re-directed focus on the services we provide, The Distance Education Clearinghouse web site has not been updated for longer than we would care to admit. Until we again have the ability to produce a quality, highly maintained and frequently updated web site, we are sadly removing the site that once provided a wide range of information about distance education and related resources. We will miss it.

The Distance Education Clearinghouse Conference Database is also being suspended at this time.

Thank you for visiting.
