About the Author

avatar 'The inventor of the system deserves to be ranked among the best contributions to learning and science, if not the greatest benefactors of mankind' Josiah F. Bumstead. When I first read this quotation I assumed it was about recent technology perhaps a new social media tool, or a new Virtual Learning Environment. But this quotation is from the rhetoric of 1841, and it is about the benefits of the chalkboard, or blackboard system.
