Morten Flate Paulsen has worked with online education since 1986. He 
designed the EKKO computer conferencing system for distance education and established the 
NKI Internet College
 in 1987. This college was probably the first European online college, 
and few (if any) online colleges in the world has been longer in continuos operation. 
He was the founder of The Distance Education Online Symposium (DEOS), when he worked 
with the American Center for the Study of Distance Education at The Pennsylvania State 
University. He was the founding editor of DEOSNEWS and the first moderator of DEOS L. 
DEOS is not only the oldest on line source of information, ideas, and discussions on the 
subject of distance education but is consistently referred to as one of the most highly regarded, 
indeed probably the most highly regarded of such sources. Numbers alone do not tell the 
whole story, and it is impossible to say, from an analysis of "hits" just how many people read 
the various items on DEOS and DEOS L, but there are in excess of 4600 subscribers in over 
80 different countries. 
Paulsen has headed the development of the Specialization Program in International Online 
Education (
www.nettskolen.com/spice)
. The program comprises five three credit courses 
about online education delivered internationally via the Internet.  
He has taken part in the following EU funded projects: 
  
Mediaweb
: Multimedia Courseware On the World Wide Web Working 
  
CISAER
: Courses on the Internet: Survey, Analysis, Evaluation, Recommendation 
  
MMWWWK
: Multimedia WWW Kernel For Distance Learning  
Paulsen s dissertation is on "Pedagogical Techniques for Computer mediated 
Communication". This research included a survey of 150 online teachers in 30 countries.
