In today’s episode, Jon chats with Matt Ragan, the Director of Training and Development at iPipeline. Ragan’s eclectic background from actor to teacher surprisingly led him to financial services and software development. These combined experiences influenced him to reinvent online learning in this industry. Out are the ways of digital textbooks.
