Was this course for me? At first, I didn’t think so, but it turned out that it was for me and a lot of other people as well. We had a few dropouts on the first day, but the ones that stayed on board became enthusiasts. Attendance from day 2 on was close to 100%. People had to be kicked out of the computer lab at the end of the day. Our course website was highly active after hours.
I came from a workplace background where every few years I would learn a new piece of desktop software, use it for awhile, and then it became outdated or I changed jobs. I thought that this was going to be more of the same. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This course was a template for implementing technology into an
educational program, workplace training situation, or even project management. All you
need is some basic computer skills and an ability to use the internet. If you are; a person who is new to IT, someone who is riding along in an outdated IT bubble, or a tech-savvy
whiz, you will enjoy this course.
I am in my first year of teaching a trade program at a community college and enrolled in a CAE (certificate in adult education) program which is designed to integrate people of diverse backgrounds, with a lot of workplace experience, into teaching roles. This is my 4th course in the program, and the best so far. I can immediately apply what I’ve learned.
