Question: Where do you see Edutainment in the next five years?
Dr. Chris A. Heidelberg III
Answer: I see Edutainment & Convergence as the future of learning, business and living in the next five years. One can already see the learning in the form of iTunesU podcasts with major universities distributing courses online for free, YouTube is also featuring courses from major universities like MIT, Stanford and Duke. Businesses will use Edutainment & Convergence as part of its social media campaign to educate consumers and persuade them to buy or support a service.

and laptops and iPods and YouTube? Wow!
