Free IT Courses
What I liked about my present job is the opportunity to enroll myself in free courses organized by Center of Teaching and Learning (CTL) and Center of Information, Communication and Technology (CICT). Both centers occasionally organized good courses to help and enhance staffs skills in various aspects.
Today, I attended a 2 day short course – Audio and Visual for Teaching. This is what part of the skill that I wanted to learn all this while. It was the first day and I already learned a lot of things related to audio and visual. At the end of the course, I should be able to comprehend and apply audio – audacity, create and edit videos using a number of useful softwares (open source softwares, off course). I manage to edit a video and upload them to Youtube.com. I also learned to use camstudio, windows movie maker, Ulead software to create videos from my own laptop. I may share some of the knowledge I gained later…
Last 2 weeks, I attended a 2 day statistical course which thought us how to use a software called Statistical Package Social Science. The application is more towards social science statistics (I’m more inclined to engineering statistics) but it’s OK as long as I learned something free of charge.
Next week, I should be joining a 4 days course entitle “Development of Dreamweaver Web”, which specially designed for webmasters. I have not yet received the invitation letter but I’m expecting it to be in my pigeon hole in one or two days.
I’m still waiting for CICT to organize another Adobe Photoshop course so I can learn and apply them easily. I guess I’m lucky to be able to attend all these courses free of charge with excellent refreshments provided.
Now, I guess you might be wandering, am I too free to attend many courses? 🙂
