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 need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
