Goodbye to The Old School

LearnNow features about 300 vendor-approved subjects and has courses ranging from training in basic software such as word processing or Web browsing, up to higher level engineering certificates such as Microsoft's MSCE. Other vendors include Oracle, Netscape, Novell and Cisco.

Angus Knight's internet services project manager, Chris Ewan, said there were approximately 300 courses currently available on the site, a figure he said would increase to 1000 by the end of the year.

Also launching its curriculum this week was IT publisher IDG Communications with its training portal, EducateIT. Launched in partnership with online recruitment company Jobnet Worldwide, EducateIT offers technical, personal, and university level training courses.

EducateIT is indicative of the booming online training market; the site lists more than 3000 courses accredited to more than 20 training partners, including Compaq, IBM, Oracle, Sun and Drake Training.

IDG's COO, Andrew Birmingham, said the company was excited about the enthusiasm the IT training industry had shown for the site. "Their (the IT training industry) commitment to this site ensures that visitors will be able to find solutions to their training needs right from the launch of the site," he said.

IDG is Australia's largest IT publisher and the world's leading provider of IT media, research, conferences and expositions.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
