    Many educational and professional development activities that people do today with ease through technology were done from the mid-1990s. They just took more effort, patience, and ingenuity. Therefore, this compilation may stand the test of time. The history of innovations such as wholly online academic conferences or virtual worlds, may be of use or interest to researchers and scholars in a field that is thin on theory and disciplinarity.
