Editor's Note
Here at TrainingZONE we endeavour to keep you informed on the
Latest news in IT training and technology, and provide tips and
guides on software application and training delivery styles. We
also aim to research current IT training trends, and to ascertain
the future role of IT trainers in a world where the methodology
for the delivery of educational and training subjects would
appear to be taking on new qualities.

While TrainingZONE retains an unbiased opinion on the subject of
e-learning, education and training, we seek to provide members
with information and opinions from all viewpoints. In a few
weeks time our IT Training Editor will be facilitating a Workshop
discussion on the future for IT trainers and we welcome all
members to join our talk. All views will be greatly welcomed.
