September 3rd , 2009 - Online Distance Learning

Presenter: Terry McKenna



Former club president, Terry McKenna, will take a break from his
Information Systems Management master’s degree studies to give this
month’s presentation. The presentation will cover two topics....
online distance learning and the IT job market.


Terry is currently enrolled in the University of Liverpool online
master’s program, and will introduce a selection of IT degree
programs, discuss their merits, and share his experience of
juggling work and studies while trying to live a normal life.


A demonstration of Blackboard software will also be given,
which will offer an in-depth look at what is to be expected from
this type of learning environment. The discussion will be informal,
encouraging questions during the presentation.
PowerPoint slides will not be used, so bring a notebook if required.
