The Missing Link between LiveCode and Teachers

The Missing Link between LiveCode and Teachers is
Hypermedia Learning.

Recently, I was consulting EBSCO database:

http://search.ebscohost.com/

for articles and publications about
Hypermedia.

Surprisingly, most of these articles have been
written from 1988 to 1995 and uses the Macintosh
and HyperCard as their role model for hypermedia
explanations and implementation.

After 1995, multi-platform web browsers
opened the internet frontier and hypermedia
learning and teaching was relegated to
a second plane. The big problems was:
NOT EVERYONE had an internet connection.
Still today, this is true in most parts of the
world. Maybe not in your neighborhood, but
this is true in most parts of the world

Today, April 2014, one of the hottest topics
in education is the "gamification of learning" 
but...
How could a teacher have the skills to
create a game for their classes, if her/him
do not even know the basics of hypermedia
creation?

My request to Kevin&Co. (RunRev) and Richard,
as Community Manager is:
Contact by email every author of Hypermedia
books, article, tutorial and publication.
Request them to test and use LiveCode
as a Hypermedia learning tool and send
directly to the mothership their comments
about the suitability of LiveCode for 
this specific task.

I am sure that many of them will be
surprised by the capabilities and
easy of use of this platform.

Probably, some of them will want to
update their publications using
LiveCode as model.

What do you think?
