The Computer-Based Education Research Laboratory was established in the 1960s. Here, Chalmers Sherwin and Donald Bitzer would develop PLATO (Programmed Logic for Automated Teaching Operations), the world's first time-shared computer-based education system. A tradition of innovation in computer-aided instruction at Illinois started with PLATO, which has since evolved into NovaNet.
