Just got home from NTAC after a great week of teaching computers. Both the instructors and the students voted this the best Region 9 computer rally to date.
Last year, we had wireless internet (courtesy of the local isp) for the first time at a WBCCI computer rally. This year, we topped that by having both the wireless and broadband wired internet at each of the 40 work stations. With the exception of two very ancient computers, all students were able to attach to one or both of the broadband connections.
We had a full day of Windows, a full day of Word, a full day of security and maintenance, a full day of digital photography, a half day of web browsing, and a half day of Powerpoint/Excel, plus evening practice/help sessions.
Included were 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches at neighboring Hill College, plus a Friday evening "Graduation dinner".
Our crew of instructors have put the computer rally on for 3 years straight now and we are all stepping aside and passing the baton with the hopes that someone will pick it up and put on the 2006 rally.
