Computer based online training in the library
Cate V. McNeely wrtites : \"Check out: The Richmond Review (2/3rds down
for an article on a new collaboration between the
Public Library (B.C.) and FirstClass Systems to provide
online training to library customers. It is a partnership
that provides a
great service to visitors to the Library\'s web site and
revenue for both organizations.
\"The purpose is
to give people other options in learning, said librarian
“We’re saying to people you don’t just have to study in
the classroom, you can take courses from home, from
anywhere,” said Civkin.
FirstClass usually provides educational software to
large corporations but approached the Richmond
library because “they heard that we are innovative,”
Civkin said. \"
Also in the news from Richmond:
