It's pretty hard to avoid technology in our lives today, I for one never wanted to. I decided to start MakUpYourMind because I love seeing the "aha" moments with people.
There is so much more that all these devices can do for us and even I am learning new things everyday. I get a real thrill when I show someone something and they say to me "If only I'd know this a week ago it would have saved me 3 hours of work"
That is what gets me out of bed in the morning.
Another thing about technology is how it is constantly changing and so we are never finished learning. Many people don't like this, I love it! So often I haven't learnt more from a colleague showing me something in 5 minutes than I could have from 2 hours of reading a manual. Most times it's because the manual was out of date about 3 months after being written.
Technology may have created this challenge, but it's also offering solutions. If you are a training organisation, you could create digital manuals, which are just as easy to update as ordinary manuals, but the it's in the distribution that they come into their own.
You can simply upload the updated manual to your website and have people who want he update download it. Also manuals don't have to be static anymore. You can create media rich textbooks and manuals, with video, image animations and more.
We are living in the future and I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
