Was thinking this morning here at Home. Why dont tech-forums have some sort of practical user based online course. You know what a mean. Here in the UK we have Learn direct, and thus thinking on the same principal why dont you gyes set up an Interactive course in wich to gain Acutal Qualifications.
Now thing is, I my self am Disabled, and dispite being able to get out and about once, at best twice a day here at Home in the UK, I spend alot of Time on the Computer, and Running the IE.v9, I have the forums open 24\7, even if I'm not loged in, and still check every day on new threads and topics, ect.
If, their was an Opertunity, why not have tech-forums gain, employ, have, or hire more People to moderate with the in House Courses.. Whatever the word. You see what I'm trying to say, some sort of Online course..
Ideas could be:
Unix\Linux Based Programing,
Hardwere Trouble shooting,
Microsoft Desktop Surport,
Security Based Application Programing (of some sort),
Now this is just an Idea, and in no way is Final, as in I probs have'nt fully thought it threw, but I'm just thinking from a perspective of a Disabled Person, myself. And haveing alot of time on my hands, why not even do some sort of in House Cert's, for people "that are willing to participate" .
Also I know my spelling is Poor so please excuse that.
