    Thank you for covering this story. Back in the 90s, when I ran a consulting company in Boston, I introduced several of my corporate clients to using blended learning that contained short, web-based instruction to deliver more training and knowledge in a way that employees would actually enjoy. This led to them talking it up ... effectively selling it to coworkers, making it easy for us to continue to implement change. The way that Wolpa and Christman are approaching their material is exactly what my colleagues and I hoped we would see happening in the corporate arena and in schools. Sometimes great ideas take time to grab hold. I'm still waiting for corps and school environments to embrace all the positive, measurable benefits of gaming (cognitive learning, memory improvement, motor skills, social maturation, etc.) Perhaps it'll take awhile yet. I hope Wolpa and Christman's work will encourage others to try more tools and break through their video- and game-resistant thinking to obtain similar improvements. Huge hats off to them!
