Abstract

As a higher education administrator who has worked in New York, Illinois, Massachusetts and now, New Jersey, I have the benefit of understanding the challenges to our education systems. I have the practical experience to offer some advice to my colleagues who are bemoaning that again another promise of magic has not provided the cure to education's ills. In 1999 I wrote an article for AACE entitled "Get Wired, Go Digital." It dealt with the major issues in the digital landscape in that era that had to be taken into account when deciding to move into the new arena.Looking back on that article, I realized that much of what I wrote then still applies today. Little has changed except lots of failure, a crop of new players, and more costly and sophisticated systems. What is an administrator to do? "Bought Without Thought" will offer you some new insights into the world e-learning beyond today.
