Editor's Note

There is so much happening at TrainingZONE right now, the pace
does not slow, nor would we wish it to. Bringing the latest in
Training and Technology news is our business and we have much in
store for the future.

One of the key issues in today's world of training, which not
surprisingly, is receiving much attention, is that of e-learning
- this is a rapidly growing area. As important as it is,
however, e-learning is not the only important news available to
IT Trainers, and TrainingZONE is providing relevant information
on this and many other topics.

A further key issue for IT Trainers working with MS Office, is
the pending release of XP Office. Whatever your opinion, it is
almost certain that sometime in the very near future some of you
will be teaching it. There are links below concerning this with
one to a special free XP Gym provided by Microsoft.

Remember this is your Newswire and we love to hear your views,
tips and advice. Please write to Kathleen Hopper at
