As they were talking about the features, one of them mentioned the ability to combine shapes to create your own. thought it was a pretty cool feature so I asked in what tab it was, and the reply was that it wasn’t in a tab.

Designing Learning Games for Multiple Devices

Bottom-Line Performance

For many of us, a smart phone is the last object we touch before we go to bed… and the first object we grab in the morning.

Happiness is a choice

Jay Cross

This morning I was awakened by Flirt, our 11-pound miniature dachshund, rolling around on her back in ecstasy.

Wonderful Brain

It can’t be a secret that stereotypes are often well proven by personal experience. And in my many years building learning, whether facilitated instruction or elearning it’s a cardinal rule that instructional designers need to know many aspects of their target learner’s personality traits.

Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of posts on the international flavour of technology and/or learning & development. In April 2012, I decided to make a bold step in my life and move to Berlin.
