New Dimension Media offers teachers flexibility in how they present media to their students, Rivers also noted.

Butterfield also comes to New Dimension Media from Sunburst Technology, where she worked for more than 13 years.

Video on demand, and the flexibility of the system allows teachers to use video interactively, which is more likely to engage students."
