  From the Anguilla Local News - Site Map.

[Click to enlarge view of class] A three-person team came to Anguilla to given an Internet course funded by the Canadian government.

Pictured here, left to right, are Stuart Colquhon, a computer consultant from Eduplus in Canada, Wendy Lowe, an instructor from Tecsult in Canada, and Mark Ernest, an Information Research Specialist from OECS Education Reform in St. Lucia. Anguilla was just one stop on their whirlwind training tour, which also visited Grenada, Dominica, and Antigua.

Educators in Anguilla were given a hands-on introduction to the Internet. The computer room of the Remote Learning Center (in the library) was connected to the Internet, allowing them to send and receive email messages, "surf" the net, and find educational resources.

The course lasted two days and each person had their own Pentium PC with Windows NT and all the Internet tools. The attendees I talked to were very pleased with the course, excited about email and the Net, and wishing that they had it on their desks!
