Free Basic PDA Training for Educators and Students

Administrators, teachers and students interested in learning how to use their palmOne handheld computers have a new resource at their disposal -- a website for online basic training -- palmOne announced today.

Free and convenient, the palmOne Online Basics website, which can be accessed from palmOne's education page, offers around-the-clock access to topics that cover fundamental uses of the personal information management (PIM) applications. "How to" modules in the use of the Calendar, Date Book, Memo Pad, Note Pad, HotSync(R) operation, beaming and more are covered in short segments that feature a "look, listen and learn" format aimed at both visual and auditory learners. Segments include voice instructions and short training movies.

The palmOne Online Basics website is part of palmOne's ongoing investment in programs that offer long-term benefits to teachers and students and support for a fast-growing market. According to IDC, K-12 public schools are expected to spend nearly $300 million on handhelds by the 2005/2006 school year. Other programs include the palmOne Education Training Coordinator program, a train-the-trainer program that supports handheld technology staff development for qualified educational systems; palmOne Education Workshops conducted by palmOne Certified Trainers with expertise in the Palm OS(R) platform and years of experience as K-12 educators and administrators; and professional development web conferences for individuals and groups.

Where is the f.. manual???

Hi you all,
you know me as a person who rarely rants-but this move is totaly fuxated. Offer the users a web page and ditch the manual! The manual that shipped with my Tungstens was a joke and nothing else. When I buy a 400$ handheld, I want a printed, bound manual.

While a web page may be nice, what do users do that purchase their Palm and don't have internet access?
Just my 2 cents
