I am a welder and now a welding instructor for a community college in southeast Alabama. I love what I do and would have never dreamed being a teacher could be as rewarding as it has become. I have always heard that teachers do it for the love of teaching, not for the money, and this statement could not hold any more truth for me.

  1. Jarrod, great job on your blog this week. It thought your use of images really help showcase the technologies you were discussing. I thought you picked some great examples. LMS, Smartphones, simulators are all great examples of technologies that enable training at a distance and place the learner in a life like environment. I have had some bad experiences with LMS, not that the tech did not function, it was more along the lines of polices and processes for updating content. One LMS I worked with only aloud content updates once every two years. This was problematic as out content changed every six months. And by the time we went through there testing process, the content was out of date ( it tool upwards of 90 days to complete the testing process). Great job this week!
