Jeffrey Pomerantz is an Information Scientist with more than 20 years of experience in studying and evaluating information services and educational technologies in a variety of contexts.
Pomerantz is an Associate Professor of Practice and the Online Program Coordinator at the School of Library and Information Science at Simmons University. Prior to that, he was a Senior Researcher with the EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR), and before that, a tenured Associate Professor in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for over a decade.

He has taught fully-online and hybrid courses since 2001… before the first fully-online web-based degree program launched, and way before the term MOOC was invented.
