Real indicators of success


Recognition of
a
teacher from secondary
school that taught children for years about
networks
(she admited she was not sure if
her lectures were correct
)

that our lectures
clarified everything. Furthermore, she was
so exicited that she wish to be enrolled in
Cisco Networking Academy for further
education (this can be read in her post on
the forum).

Real indicators of success


A number of teachers request to collect all
the material from the course in pdf
-
textbook that will be used for their
purposes (numerious posts on the forum)


Requests for the rights to teach students
with our material and to place it on their
web sites


Real indicators of success


Recognition that this was a serious course
-

collected and printed material reaches
more than 250 pages! Other vocational
training required of them to read only
about 20
-
pages.


A few days before the test, especially the
night before the test, activity on the site
