Three Ages of Computing: Dawn of the Experience Age?
“We went through three phases of computing:
- The Computational Era which was from the 70s to the 90s. It was all about faster.
- The Information Age which happened in the 90s and sort of took us through to 2010. That was all about the web, search and text.
- We are moving into the Experience Age which is all about sight and sound and connectedness and live and changing the way we are together.”
From a BBC radio programme What If… We Could All Have the World’s Best Education? about the growth of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC).
