In this paper, the authors provide a history of the leading role that the University of Hawaii has taken in distance education, from the 1960’s development of the ALOHA Network, to 1970’s computer programming instruction via teletype dial-up to a time-sharing computer. Current advances at the Department of Information and Computer Sciences include developments in ALN courseware and in investigations of how students’ individual differences influence performance. Other advances in the College of Education include outreach work with Pacific Islanders in Micronesia and American Samoa.
