Before I began my journey with Intranet Connections, I was a teacher. Teaching ignited my passion for helping others learn, and my love for technology fueled my desire to use technology to assist with teaching. That is what sparked me to write this blog about online education. Your intranet is an indispensable tool for educating your employees.
