You can't have an information age without having information at your fingertips, and that's what www.Learnon.org offers engineers. With all the new technologies and fast design time requirements facing design engineers, lifelong learning is becoming more important. Now you have "one-stop shopping" at www.learnon.org. The site offers more than 4,300 engineering courses listed from 60 colleges, universities, and schools, and 15 professional societies.
And it's simple to use. On the home page, you can put in the type of course you are looking for. A results page lists the provider, the course name, the instructor, cost of the course, time involved, distance, and course type (video, web-based, CD-ROM, lecture, etc.).
