Active rain is like college. You can go sit in on your favorite instructor's class for a few minutes pick up some tips or ideas or a concept, apply it, then run to the next class for a minute or two, then if you loose your concentration you can just take a break for a day or a minute, you can pass notes to one another, talk in class, and no one gets mad at you or tells you to be quiet. If you are asked a question, your answer is listened to carefully.
Our instructors are world class and if there is anything going on in the world we will find out about it. We don't have to use up the planet's resources to learn; we save on fuel, we need less clothing which saves the children from working in sweat shops, we spend more time with our families which saves on building more prisons, we save on paper which saves a tree,
