Really great article.
"The mark of a mature mind is the ability to entertain an idea without accepting it." - Aristotle
One way to create better learning, e-learning, and blended learning experiences is to encourage learners to engage in conversation.

At first I thought the reference to Susan was a spelling mistake but I soon figured out that they were referring to Susan Wojcicki; CEO of youtube! High five guys! Keep up the good work and if any of you are Star Trek fans: Live long and prosper! :)

If I've learned anything in the past two years; it's that (forgive me for saying so but) the internet needs more dimension. We've been scrolling up and down for the past two decades!

I have a very simple question. When onboarding new users to your app, is it necessary to give them the option of redoing the onboarding process further down the line? Particularly a sequence of UI tooltips.

Learning is changing! It's not just the learning of languages. People are opening up, experiencing and taking things in like never before! In different ways, not everything is categorised in right or wrong.

Knowledge should be free, learning should be passed on from everyone; not just teachers. Let's learn as much as we can and share as much as we can. Information shouldn't be saved for the privileged few, but accessible to everyone; especially those willing to learn!

Can't we all just help each other?

Compare UX to the telling of a joke...
Tell a joke to a group of people and if they laugh then it's a funny joke. Tell that same joke to the same group of people a day after... only if they laugh a second time will you know a good UX from a funny joke :)

What an awesome place. The rooms are fantastic and they have a number of great hiking routes. It's easy to find and is ideal for a peaceful get-away from the city.
