There are many ways to learn. Some people are skilled book learners, classroom learners, or test takers. But these methods of learning are ineffective for many. Some learn best by doing, by giving knowledge form through applied action. This is why interactive learning using film, software, games, and simulation is so exciting.

I’ve had the opportunity to pioneer experiential learning initially on laser discs. More recently by supporting project-based learning at Wesleyan University and Coursera. Online and blended learning can break down barriers to knowledge and empower people in industry and education.
