I once again had the great honor of presenting at an ITKAN meeting this time on the topic of self-directed learning. We had a great turnout and a lively discussion about self-directed learning and online educational platforms. There was a wide range of experience with these providers with a few who have never taken any online courses to a couple who were well experienced with them. As promised, I have uploaded the presentation to the ITKAN website as a PowerPoint and as a PDF. I have also added it to SlideShare.
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me through any of the means mentioned at the end of the presentation. In addition, come join us in the ITKAN LinkedIn Group to continue the discussion. See you at the next meeting.

A colleague and member of our Advisory Team wanted some information on Coding Bootcamps for his son. I found this great, comprehensive (or maybe not?) site and thought I’d pass on!
