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.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
