On Sunday May 3, at 1300 GMT we were Learning2gether about StudyCom with David Winet, Michael Coghlan, and Vance Stevens

The topic for Learning2gether this week is about emerging advances in online learning since the turn of the century, from a panel who were there at the beginning and have stayed on the wave for the past decade and a half. Dave Winet recently sold the domain study dot com marking the end of an era for many Webheads. Study dot com was a free website that attracted and matched teachers with language students interested in studying online just before the dawn of social media. Dave’s innovative methods created among other things a space for language learners at the Palace, which was where Vance Stevens, Michael Coghlan, and Maggi Doty met in an online class for ESL students that soon became Writing for Webheads and evolved in 2002 into Webheads in Action, a community of practice for teachers. In this session, Dave and Michael join me, Vance, in talking about some of the very forward thinking developments that characterized Dave’s work starting late last century and that have led us through Webheads in Action on up to Learning2gether, twenty years later. If you were with us at that time, please join us to add your reminiscences, and for those who have more recently joined us, enjoy a conversation with the founders of Webheads in Action.
