Discussion Summary

The Explorer group discusses their experiences and insights on how they go about learning new things.

Explorers agree that You Tube, WikiHow, and Microsoft Office (Excel) tutorials are outstanding learning tools for most tasks from new hardware or software to minor repairs. One member found Ukelele Blues on YouTube, and tells others about her experience. Google step by step instructions is another learning resource for those who prefer written directions to a watching a video clip.

All agree that the Internet offers valuable learning opportunities to those who do not have the time or access to attend a classroom setting.
