He has also been involved in extensive education research and field evaluation for such organizations as the Illinois State Board of Education, North Central Regional Educational Laboratory (NCREL) and Utah State University.

“To a former teacher, Morgan said, “video on demand technology is exciting. It has the potential to transform the ways that today’s students learn and teachers teach. These are 21st century skills for lifelong learning.”
