If your learners cannot access the information, then the information does not exist. For content to be real, it must be beneficial, usable and valuable. The deepening and inescapable need for people to truly experience learning means we need a structure – an architecture – that arranges the parts into an understandable whole. This is what I do. I make sense of untamed knowledge. I forge an immersive environment and guide inclusive experiences.
