Automated Building Systems eDucation
Sensing the industry need for education we have replaced the Systems tab on our top menu bar with the word eDUCATE. The small e large D refers to our online education web presence like eCom. The Systems information has become a subset of eDUCATE.
The rapid changing Automated Building industry has always required that all players be constantly re-educating themselves to keep current, but never has there been a time when this is so important.
Information in this new section is organized by Concept, Description, and Discussion.
The major issue with educating ourselves is in being able to quickly identify what we know and what we do not. We hope that our format will allow you to identify quickly the concepts your understand and to move on to reading more concepts only clicking deeper when more information is required. The third dimension or the depth of the learning data is an incredible feature unique to online learning.
Please share this resource with your customers, clients, and support personnel. Help us build this resource by providing us your links to online Building Automation Education and Training sites. If you would like to link our new resource and eD the Learnasaurus to your web site see instructions on our eDucation page.
Our contributing editors have provided excellent articles for our May Issue.
