    A lot of thanks for all of the effort on this website. Kim really likes making time for investigation and it’s simple to grasp why. We all hear all about the lively tactic you render precious techniques through the blog and encourage participation from visitors on the concept and our girl has been starting to learn a great deal. Have fun with the rest of the new year. You are carrying out a glorious job.

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads very fast for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

    Maybe the university so wired, “that student” is actually a walking 3d avatar :)

    “Is this the visionary school for what many colleges and universities will look like in the future?

    There are no accounting or biology majors here.”

    I think you guess the question: can you generalize this method of work for study of Political science, finance or Economics for example? Without book moreover it seems a little bit complicated, but with ebooks maybe.

    I absolutely agree that this is a refreshing and much-needed approach, far from the authoritarian and deferential educational ethos of yesteryear.

    I’m a student at Hyper Island in Stockholm and I’m not sure what the blonde girl has to do with Hyper Island… but I’m sure she generates a lot of traffic, haha.

    Oh, and some of us actually work on PC’s. We all bring our own computers.
