Higher education has a long history within many cultures in various parts of the world. It has evolved from its status throughout most of history as a fringe activity of elites to the situation today, when higher education has become a major determinant of our social and economic structure. After a brief discussion of the development of higher education in various parts of the world, we will look at the present status and structure of higher education throughout the modern world, with particular focus on Canada and the United States. The evolution of instructional techniques in higher education, as well as the evolution of the educational technologies used to support them, will also be discussed. Finally, some (educated?) guesses will be presented as to how higher education will evolve in the near future
