Podcast 61 - How can L&D use games in elearning?
This week on the Good Practice Podcast, Emma Barrow from Yorkshire Building Society joins James, Ross Garner and Eoghan from the GoodPractice team to discuss e-learning games.

Ross had to Google the ZX Spectrum after recording this episode, so here is the Wikipedia page if you're interested in doing the same: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX_Spectrum

The podcast Ross recommended, and where he got the definition of 'diurnal' from, was No Such Thing As A Fish: http://qi.com/podcast

And Eoghan's fact about Edinburgh property prices was covered by the Scotsman: http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/homes-gardens/how-much-do-you-need-to-earn-an-hour-to-buy-in-each-edinburgh-postcode-1-4539977
