From the World War to the World Wide Web: Lessons From History

A session at HighEdWeb Arkansas Regional Convention 2013

Someone once said "Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it." General Duke Abernathy said "Knowing is Half the Battle." General Anthony Clement McAuliffe said "Nuts!"

All of these are true. History gives us insight into the human condition and provides lessons for all fields. Let's take a look at some of the stories of World War II - of strategies, tactics, technology, and planning - and how they relate to web design and development in higher education today. By the end, maybe we'll have a few insights on how to bridge the communication gaps between our audiences, our authors, and ourselves.
