Hurricane Irene came and went but didn’t disturb Computer Explorers International Training. Roni Deely, a Computer Explorers franchisee since 1993 was scheduled to conduct training in Houston. Due to Hurricane Irene she didn’t board her flight out of Philadelphia. Instead she set up her office to conduct training virtually! Technology was certainly our friend from 8am – 4pm on Saturday August 27th as Irene was headed for the east coast. As Roni’s husband Bill prepared their home for the hurricane, Roni spent the entire day with Computer Explorers international students (Alan, CeCe and James) from her office using Video Skype.

Roni walked the class through several of the Computer Explorers curriculum units. Her training session was “Train the Trainer.” She did an exceptional job providing the necessary information and confidence so they can return home and conduct the same training with their  instructors.

Watch this very short video of one of their finished products. It’s their version of Angry Birds!

Join us on Inside Computer Explorers on Wednesday 10 am Central as we talk with Alan Harrison from the UK and CeCe Qian from China about the challenges of attending an international training, virtual learning and the next steps to starting business when they return home.
