Digital Learning – Define it

eLearning 24-7

When I was a kid I loved playing the game “Jumble” which could be found in virtually every U.S. newspaper that had a comics page. I normally smoked (i.e. did well) the first couple of jumbles and in many cases, only hit a roadblock on one of them or when trying to figure out the sentence for the whole thing. And yes, normally the results of the what they were seeking was usually dry and lame (no fun). Sort of like F2F training! HA, I made a funny. .
