A Merry Holidays and a Happy New Year to all of you! Future Environment Designs Closed Until January 4, 2017!

We wish all of you a Merry Holidays, we hope the coming year brings you health, and happiness!  As usual, we are closed from December 23 - January 4, 2017.  We look forward to seeing all of you during the New Year!  We are very excited by this coming New Year since we are expanding the blended learning we started after our Edinburgh trip to LITE2016.

We started the process by putting our course manuals online and providing you access to the manuals and the student portal for 365 days.  We continue the process by now including an online course evaluation process through Coursecheck, that will eliminate the paper forms.  The next phase we are planning is an online examination process which should make it easier to take the exams and further reduce paper documents.  To help those who don't have portable devices we will be supplying these devices in our classes.  We are awaiting the supply of fifteen (15) Surface 3 tablets with keyboards so we can facilitate the blended learning we are morphing our classes into.  We hope our students are just as excited as we are, as we move into this new more informative and interactive training method.  We look forward to greeting you in the New Year with these new training methods!
