We are teachers.
The majority of our clients are in school. They navigate the room around us. While it is our job to teach them, they often return the favor by teaching us. No matter what your age, we encourage you to be a lifelong learner.
Like students in the classroom, no two clients are exactly the same, which is why we customize our trainings to meet everyone's needs.
Technology can be overwhelming.
We recognize that not everyone on your staff knows how to search effectively, collaborate on a document, or publish things to the web. We work with folks like that every day. That is why we make it our business to stay ahead of the trends, integrate what is working for people, and keep an eye on what is going on in education. We do this so that we can bring your staff up to speed and get them using today's technologies.
Migrating data sounds boring.
It is like watching moss grow. That is why we have one of the best IT guys in education working with us. He knows how to move data, stack it up nicely, and get you back to work. While you try to make sense of all those ones and zeroes, he sees just another problem to solve.
It's about doing work.
Our goal is to get our audiences actively participating; they need and want hands-on experiences. We want to teach you the tools and inspire you to use them. Work should be fun, too.
