So much knowledge was imparted by the trainers who were made up of staff from ITCT-Africa, Linuxola, EDDA-Africa, Centre partner universities of Kyambogo, Kenyatta, MUST and Kinshasa.

Courses such as E-learning, social networks (the students room, facebook), e-market, e-books, e-journals, e-publishing, online libraries, among others proved very useful to the trainees especially in regards to accessibility to teaching materials online.Though Linux-Ubuntu proved a challenge in the beginning, with hands on practice, teachers found it comfortable and enjoyable to use.

Facilitators were greatly appreciated for being patient, hard working,encouraging and the good relationship with the trainees.

The IT course for teachers training,is an opener to the teaching/learning situation in the classrooms .

Its not only to the teachers/educators ,but more to the the learners because what they learn in class, is more practiced in their free lives in their environments.

It is therefore advisable that when the learning gets tougher with new skills and more so practical,there should be endurance.

Endurance is achieved with gradually putting in practice what is being learnt ! Mistakes are inevitable,thus,when at any time there is a mistake ,that marks a sign of learning that there is masterly and internalization.

Please,fellow IT practitioner(educationists-),you are an expert only when you have gradually developed the skills learnt and practice them with endurance.

Guess who the person is in the picture.He ,pushed on gradually with endurance amidst challenges and his legacy still lives on !

Keep on - gradually along with endurance!
