"Have you ever used interactive videos with students? It's an eye-opening experience to watch the enthusiasm of learners who drag a mop to the hand of the man in the picture above and watch him take it and start mopping the floor with it! In eight years of CD-Rom development, I have never seen a program that better exploits the magic of technology while retaining a sound pedagogical base."
