Training - Online vs. Classroom
By Identity Writer: J Domenichini on Nov 12, 2006
I'll take the classroom any day.
I understand that some people prefer online courses to instructor-led courses. And not because the online courses are so much cheaper, but because they're so much more enjoyable.
I am definitely not one of those people. Not that there's anything wrong with that. If that's who you are.
I'm taking an Access Manager 7 Online Training Course through Sun Training right now, and it's good stuff. Don't get me wrong; it's excellent. I'm dying, I tell you! I just finished the fourth of 12 modules. There's a soothing instructor's voice talking me through the whole thing. Lots of screen casts. It's quite clear. Dying! Burning alive! It's killing me! High quality, state of the art, professional, online training. I highly recommend it if you like that kind of thing. I've learned a lot.
Give me a right-there-in-the-classroom instructor any day of the week. I actually took an instructor-led Access Manager class about a year and a half ago. Heaven! A delight. Of course, I didn't have to pay for it, so it was that much more delightful. Through Sun Training, I also once took a Solaris 10 instructor-led course. That was equally fantastic. That class made me want to be a better man, and that's as good as it gets.
What does this all mean to you? I have no idea. But, here's the link to all of the Identity Management Training courses. Perhaps you too will reach a higher state of consciousness. Unlikely, highly unlikely, but let's not count it out.
