As a longtime professor of critical thinking, ethics, logic, scientific reasoning, among other things, Dr. Kevin deLaplante had a hunger to spread these skills outside of the classroom. With upwards of 50k students served through online courses, over 40k youtube subscribers, and even a video with over a million views, it’s clear that this move was fruitful.
