    Ron, thanks for another great podcast. Really like the soccer example. As a youth baseball coach, I can completely relate. We are just now launching JR at work, and are getting positive feedback. However, one of the things people don’t like about the course is the examples. They are a little dated, and people get tired of listening to the story being read by the instructor. One of our thoughts was that it would be very nice if someone created video simulations of the example problems. Not sure if that is part of your plans for your JR course or not, but we would love to see that! Thanks again.
