Dr Gloria Gomez


Rodney Tamblyn


As part of an EdtechNZ Showcase during Techweek , Gloria and Rodney had a chat with David Moskovitz and Truman Pham on OB3 as a tool for classrooms, and perhaps a useful companion tool for authoring, collaborating and co-creating in the LMS environment / ecosystem. We talked about our academic clients inspired the creation of OB3 and our interest to support self-publishing.
