Between semester-long college courses and 15-min TED talks, there is a space that 3ND is filling with fun learning experience. Dive in this weekend, or any day or night, to the 3ND site:
www.3nightsdone.org
and 3 hours later you'll say to yourself: "I learned something interesting!" before you get to say "This is too much for me."

Enjoy learning. 3 Nights at a time.

The First Adaptive Book Released
On Valentine's Day 2013, we unveiled the first-ever Integrated and Individualized BookApp (IIB).

Books have forever been following essentially the same format, even with eBooks, bookmarks, animations, and finger gestures. But shouldn't a book, in the form of a tablet app, learn how you learn and adapt accordingly? Shouldn't such a book app integrate a MOOC and remove the boundary between online learning and textbooks?

That's exactly what IIB does. It Integrates video, quiz, feedback, and social learning into the textbook (that's one "I") and adapts both the content and presentation of the chapter based on your Individualized learning need (that's another "I"). In fact, we cannot even call it "a" book anymore, as different people will actually be reading different versions of the book.

We're excited to announce that the first IIB, Chapter 3 of our textbook Network 20Q, is launching on February 14, 2013, as a free app to 100 students around the world.
