Rob, I consider that three-hour period before the CEC events to be an engineer's watercooler. It's where the liveliest conversations take place.

Thanks Notarboca. I certainly learn a lot when I participate in these classes. Even the basic classes were helpful for putting the basics in perspective.

@Rob Spiegel-- CEC definitely serves the engineering community with some programs that are very basic, and others that if you check out the moderator's links, will lead you into a great learning experience.  Congrats on the award!

Yes, Chuck, I've always thought it was interesting how audience members sign in hours before the broadcast. I'm not sure what that's all about. Maybe they just want to talk with a fellow engineer. There must be a wanting-to-connect factor in online presentations.

I agree, Rob. The CEC is amazing. Whenever I get on the site on the morning of a CEC class, the listeners are checking in, hours before the show, chattering back and forth about their experiences with the technology of the day. Digi-Key really clicked with this idea.

Well, Chuck, I guess that makes the Digi-Key Continuing Education Center the little train that could. I would guess the takeaway here is that the education center is filling a clear need.

Having attended the awards last night, I can say that I was amazed that Design News and Digi-Key were able to compete with the big-budget guys who were also in attendance. Companies like Pepsico, McDonald's and AT&T have big name agencies working for them, but our Continuing Education Center more than held its own.
