You will need the NetLogo application to run any of these models.

If clicking on a model does not initiate a download, try right clicking or control clicking and choosing "Save" or "Download".
If the model code appears in your browser as text, save it (Save As from the browser File menu), and be sure that your browser does not add a ".txt" or other extension to the file name.

A screenmovie describes what Distributed Learning is and how these models illustrate Distributed Learning.
