The newest addition to the CollaborNation DIY (Do It Yourself) platform is video! When the programmers at CypherWorx initially created DIY, it allowed individuals to quickly and easily create training classes on their own by uploading either a PowerPoint presentation or a PDF file. They could then add audio and a quiz to track compliance and, voila, a course was built! Certificates were also given upon completion.

A few months ago, I was sitting on a plane, flying home from home from a winter escape.

Children are incapable of scoring well on standardized testing, ill prepared to apply to college, and lack the 21st century skills to function in our world today. Look at the statistics, and the future seems truly daunting.
