The best things we’ve clicked on lately


1
This interactive online exhibit from the Brooklyn Museum and Netflix showcases the costumes of "The Queen's Gambit" and "The Crown".

2
Renee Hobbes's new book "provides a state-of-the-art look at the theory and practice of propaganda. Use it to build your students' critical thinking & communication skills on topics including content marketing, demagoguery, and more."

3
From power stations that look like suburban houses to midtown mansion that hide subway vents, infrastructure buildings are never what they appear to be. (An excerpt from Roman Mars's The 99% Invisible City)

4
Tab will be retired this year, but its roots go back to soda made for diabetics in the 1950s and marketing conundrums in the '60s.

5
These timelapse videos demonstrate just how much houseplants move and stretch during the day to find the best sunlight.

 
Show & Tell

That Calendar feature I've been writing about for a couple newsletters? We launched it! Anyone who's a learner on a path with scheduled items now sees a calendar icon above the list of what they're learning. Clicking it shows a full view of every scheduled item. You can view by the month, week, or a simple list. You can also subscribe to it with Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, or Microsoft Outlook. Learn more about it in our Help Center here.

 
News from HQ

Though we released Calendar recently, we're continuing to make upgrades to it. Those will roll out over the coming weeks. Also coming down the pike: Upgrades to Community that make that area of any path more personal and collaborative. Also also: upgrades to Stripe integration. More on these soon.
 

 

A couple weeks ago we ran our annual team retreat all-online. While I love being in the same room as everyone, this year was special too. We enjoyed running everything with Pathwright! Christian worked his Ed Labs magic, keeping transitions smooth and breaking up sessions with games. If you'd like to hear his secrets for making an online conference hum, email him here.

Did you know we offer free demos you can schedule yourself and time to talk about interesting problems in education (shoot Christian an email)? See how things work with us. You don't have to find the optimal approach on your own.
 

Rip off that November page. Toss it straight in the trash (or, wait, recycle it). It's the start of another month today. I hope it works the same for you, but I get an automatic infusion of optimism at the beginning of each month. We're in crossing-the-last-things-off-the-year's-todo-list mode here at HQ. What do you aim to finish up before we cross the 2021 line?
