Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Sample Course

ATBC, boot camp, training, sample
We're still pecking away like little Woody Woodpeckers writing unit lessons, making screencasts, creating quizzes, working from sun up to moon rise to get Part 1 of the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp ready to unleash on an unsuspecting and woefully unprepared world by April 13. Yep, that's our deadline so picked because it's right before Holy Week. Seemed like a good place for a deadline.

Meanwhile, as promised in my last post, I've prepared a little morsel of the course which you are invited to sample. The purpose of this sample is not so much to give you a peek into the course content, although it does that, but rather to give you an idea of the look and feel of the course. If you're not familiar with online learning, this may help give you an idea of what it's like. To take the sample course, Kommen zie hither, bitte.

The other important part of the course, which you won't see unless you're enrolled, is the forum where you can ask questions and get help on the units you're working on that are giving you trouble. Between the quizzes and the forums, Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp is the web's premiere interactive appliance repair learning experience.


Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp Update

appliance training and 2 more...
Just wanted to give a quick update on the Samurai Appliance Tech Boot Camp. Don't think we've forgotten about it! In fact, just the opposite-- developing the course has been an all-consuming task for me and Mrs. Samurai (she's a world-class technical editor). You can get a sneak-peak and what we've been doing at the Boot Camp website: http://ApplianceTechBootCamp.com

You won't be able to click into the units and view the contents but you can see the basic course structure and the units that we've completed or are in the process of editing.

The course will be fully interactive with many of the units requiring an 80% score to pass and advance to the next unit or module. The quizzes are automatically and instantly graded so there's no waiting for the test results before moving on. In this way, the entire course is kept self-paced.

Also, if a student has questions about the material or needs more explanation about something, that's available in the Forums at the Boot Camp site.

Please let me know if you have any comments or questions! Would love to have your comments and feedback at this point in the development because it would be very easy to incorporate those changes.


ASTI 2014, Evernote Edition

ASTI, 2014, evernote
Well, mah bruvahs, heading out on that big ol' jet airliner from Logan tomorrow afternoon making that long haul to San Diego for the 2014 ASTI. Looking forward to seeing some of you there and will miss those of you who can't make it this year.

For my absentee brethren, the Samurai's got your six! I'll be taking copious notes and will post them all as PDFs in the Downloads section when I return. Additionally, if any of you have any specific questions you'd like me to ax the instructors, please post them as comments to this blog post (so I can keep them all in one place and make sure I get them asked).

Also, one more goodie: I'll be posting various highlight notes and photos from the conference to a public Evernote notebook. You can check in periodically to see what's new as the conference progresses. Access the Evernote ASTI notebook here: https://www.evernote...oidman/asti2014

Well, it's been over a year now ridin' with my trusty tool backpack, doing service calls in every imaginable situation, including hiking up snowy and icy driveways to get to the house and I just wanted to give an update.
