Exploring educational delivery frontiers to find effective ways of helping learners understand what they need to know, when they need to know it. I’ve been involved with computer-based learning since before its transition from floppy disc to CD-ROM through to its explosion across the World Wide Web. Whether standing in a classroom or collaborating on an eLearning project, I’ve learned that while the tools will constantly change, the focus should always be on providing the best possible learning experiences to ensure understanding and knowledge retention.
