Hi Randal,

I've been having a browse through Cloud Class and it looks quite interesting and even a little enticing. However, one thing that I think is sorely lacking (I'm not yet a member of Cloud Class) is that there doesn't appear to be any previews of the course(s) on offer? Or indeed, prices?

The preview issue existed before Cloud Class too, with the one-minute preview blurb that was provided giving little to no useful information on available courses at Experts Exchange because it was so short.

Often, a course can look great, only to find that when you start it, you and the instructor just don't 'gell' or the course isn't what it appeared to be.

I think it would be highly beneficial for the first couple of video's of all courses to be available as a preview to help members decide if they want to purchase them or not. Either that or the ability to get a full refund if a purchased course isn't what it (or as good as) looked like it would be.

The preview issue is what's preventing me from wanting to Enroll in Cloud Class at the moment, and from past discussions in Community Groups, I know others have similar concerns.

Thoughts?

Regards, Andrew

Even though starting and growing a lucrative business while you’re still in college sounds impossible, it is actually quite conceivable. There are several reasons why this is the perfect time to start a new venture.

We want LESS regulation and we DO NOT want the government to control the internet!
Stand AGAINST Net Neutrality! Don't listen to the scare tactics!
Twitter and Facebook and Google and many other repressive corps are FOR Net Neutrality - that says it all doesn't it?
Say something the SJW's don't like and you are banned on Twitter and Facebook! Google simply skews your search results.

I think the lack of females in Tech also has to do with parental encouragement. I may not be a typical example, as my daughter would sit on my lap watching me write articles for a couple of magazines before she could even talk properly, but as she grew older, she also started watching me build machines and asking questions. I saw her interest in that and encouraged her to have a go, letting her do things on PC builds that were fairly basic. Fast forward about 25 years and she now has IT qualifications to the wazoo and no problem getting IT positions, or jobs to physically fit and/or repair hardware in PC's.

In the factory I got my Carpenter and Joiner Indentures, there was one full-time female gardener who could shift a barrel load of soil with the best of them. How did she get the job, when there were already 2 other male gardeners employed? I say it's because she went for it and encouraged by her parents to follow her passions.

The point I'm trying to make here is that this problem isn't just in IT Tech. It exists in other areas too, such as Carpentry, Plumbing and just about any male-dominated industry you can think of. I think it's the parents who can make the changes too. We as parents also need to take on the "Leadership Roles" that you speak of - it's important if things are to change in the long term.

Some parents may notice an interest shown by their child that may not be considered a "typical" role for females today yet don't encourage them and toss them a doll or buy them a toy tea set instead. Why? If they seem to enjoy it, I say encourage them. You can't just put it on the hire companies - most times, if the talent is there, the job will be offered, regardless of profession.

As for the sexual harassment part of it - just let them try it while I'm alive. Either that or my daughter has never told me of any instances for fear I'd end up locked up for a few years! <g>

Anyway, interesting article. Thanks for sharing.
