Short Description

As distance educators, one of the most difficult tasks we face is creating a virtual environment that encourages collaboration and community between our students. To that end, Julius Su and Victor Kam from Caltech University are revolutionizing distance education through their SKIES learning system. This innovative platform, designed with STEM learners in mind, allows students and teachers of all grade levels to interact in a media-rich environment like never before.
