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.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
