The best things we’ve clicked on lately


1
Oh No Type Co recently did a series on Instagram explaining the typographical reasons why letters are the way they are—starting with "A", naturally.

2
The bears at Yellowstone have a side gig: user testing new camping coolers to see if they're truly bear-proof.

3
"Using principles from hourly work to define productivity in knowledge work has resulted in highly inefficient—and sometimes unhappy—work conditions for many employees. As remote work is becoming increasingly common, management will need to adapt." A lot of cross-application for the teacher-learner relationship too, I think.

4
Chess masters are losing 10-15 pounds during tournaments, but why? (A surprisingly relevant reason, honestly.)

5
I like the harsh and warm materials and clever design choices, but really it's the two-story slide that sells me on this house.

 
Show & Tell

My pal Christian wrote an article on how to tackle moving your learning online. He busts five myths—including that an online experience is unavoidably worse—and provides a four-piece toolkit. Selfishly, I love when we put out a new article because I get to draw a new illustration.

 
News from HQ

As we near the end of 2020, our team is designing and testing upgrades for you in Cohort Communities, Calendar, & Checkout. Soon you'll get new and enhanced Community features for Cohorts and an all-new Calendar view for learners and teachers. We're also excited to be working on upgrades to our Stripe integration that will improve Checkout and open up more options for future billing models.

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.

I'm finishing this email with a warm cat in my lap. I hope, literally or metaphysically speaking, you've got a warm cat in your lap.
