Every day of every year, our goal is to provide you all with the best experience possible. We take all of your comments and suggestions to heart because, at the end of the day, we want you to truly enjoy learning. That’s why we’re constantly making changes. Sometimes the changes are obvious—like when we overhauled the website—and sometimes they’re more subtle, which is why we thought you’d like to see our accomplishments for 2017:
