    schema:description "For well-known educator and author Roger Schank, these methods are more than just theory. Schank packs Virtual Learning with actual case histories and examples, including in-depth coverage of the Business Practices Course he developed for Andersen Consulting. After working with Schank, Arthur Andersen, the world's largest consulting firm and the first to implement virtual learning, reported that dramatic improvements resulted from their training programs and other companies have asked to purchase their training systems."@en ;
