To make the learning experience more active, and to sharpen problem-solving and critical thinking skills, we combine visual learning, writing skills, critical thinking exercises, time-revealed scenarios, case studies, and empirical observation. Bloom’s Taxonomy (Bloom 1956) and the Revised Blooms for Web 2.0, (2009) can be applied to not only a course, but also to the type of interactivity used to demonstrate a concept, depending on the level of competence desired.
