LT - Spring 2014

The latest issue of our newsletter, LT, is now available for LTSIG members to download. 

This marks the 30th Anniversary of the LTSIG and features a selection of articles from the last three decades, covering a wide range of topics. This provides an opportunity to look back and reflect on the evolution of learning technology during this period. While the development has been rapid, many of the concerns of the past are just as important today.
