Scott WinsteadWelcome to my website!
Here’s to recap a little. I got a Master of Laws degree from Stanford Law School back in the 1980s. After a couple years of legal practice I felt an urge to contribute to the emerging information boom. It was a paradigm shift. Life opened new horizons for remote education, content sharing, exchange of ideas.

My alma mater was, in fact, a pioneer in computer-assisted education.

Professors Patrick Suppes and Richard C. Atkinson experimented with using computers to teach arithmetic to elementary school students back in the mid-1960s. However, I wasn’t thinking much on the subject in my student years.

I reached a pivotal point in 2001 when I first read Ivan Illich’s Deschooling Society. His critical discourse against institutionalized education made me think there was, indeed, a viable alternative or at least another angle to it.

Since then, I’ve been actively engaged in promoting e-learning technology. Authoring tools and learning management systems, mind mappers, quiz makers, smart grading and engaging interactive content – these are some of the buzzwords I’ll be throwing around in this blog.

I’m happy to share thoughts on things e-learning with readers seeking advice as well as fellow industry veterans. Come on board, and let’s see how we can make this planet a better place!
