DimensionU is the company behind the award-winning DimensionU Learning System – a universe of multi-player educational video games where students learn, practice, compete, and collaborate, globally, in core K-12 subjects including math, literacy, science and history.Nt founded DimensionU on the premise that the education system needed to become truly “customer-oriented,” where the real customer in education is the student. It was his belief that prior to DimensionU most emphasis was placed on creating tools to help teachers teach or creating tools to help schools, districts or governments figure out whether teachers were teaching, but very little was being done to ensure that the tools we were putting in front of students were communicating with them in the way they needed to see or hear (social networks, video games, SMS text, etc.) to truly engage this new, digitally active generation (please see more about this vision in the section “Our Vision of the World”)Prior to founding DimensionU, Nt worked for a number of years managing the creation, implementation and analysis of various disruptive consumer products for Bank One and Citigroup.
