Supporting succesful learning is a big topic. we've done our best to categorize the feedback, but am certiainly interested in someone else taking a stab at different categories.

The current categories are... Research & data driven, Supported, Engaged/ Interactive, Open, Applied, Flexible. Are there some in this list that are more important than others? How do they interact with one another? If you could only tackle 2 of them, which ones would you choose? Why?
