Thériault, Pascale; Allaire, Stéphane; Gagnon, Vincent – McGill Journal of Education, 2017

Hardware is the name in the trade for the mechanical or electronic tools and equipment; software is the material or the programs that are fed into, or…

Educational technology is not new. Between the years 1809 and 1936 the United States Patent Office issued over six hundred patents for machines which could teach.
