    Serious Games have gotten a lot of attention recently as an effective way of providing training to our modern and tech-savvy workforce. Perhaps that’s because game-based training is an engaging, flexible and entertaining method of delivering the information workers need in order to perform their jobs. Serious Games allow participants to practice decision-making skills, learn new techniques, understand the results of an action, and to receive immediate feedback on their performance. But there’s another type of individualized learning that’s also gaining in popularity

    [Providers] Keynoting Texas Community College Technology Forum 2010
    On Friday, I’ll be in the big o’le state of Texas speaking about the future of technology for community colleges. I do a lot of work with community colleges and know first hand the innovative technologies and first class hands-on education that community colleges can provide. I am going to do my part by helping community college educators to expand the four walls of the classroom beyond even what many are doing today. Here is a short description of my talk. Gadgets, Games and Gizmos: Community Colleges of the Future. And a special thanks to Ann B.
