"Net Power & Light, based in San Francisco, is making its debut with technology it calls Spinthat turns online education into a group activity, even if the participants are on opposite sides of the globe.
"The company has released three free iPad apps that allow users to create virtual gatherings where they can all watch educational content together from sources such as Harvard, Stanford University, TED and the National Geographic Channel. Users can also fast-forward to the best parts, pause the program so the group can debate a particular point via videoconferencing, or jump to a different clip."
