Hello lynn ans trainers,
No problem to propose a direct registration and to forget regonline
Hello Eclipse trainers!
For the past few training series we've been seeing that most
companies want to arrange billing directly rather than through
RegOnline. What if for this spring series we keep the central web
page http://www.eclipse.org/community/training/classes.php, but
for the registration link instead send people directly to your
individual web pages? We would still have the shared course
outlines, promotion under the Eclipse Foundation name, etc., but
we would not use RegOnline at all. Advantages are that there
would be no set up time on our end and companies could customize
the information on their registration pages.
The disadvantage is that registrants would not see a centralized
registration system where information was displayed exactly the
same across all courses. Seeing as most people sign up based on
what's closest to them, I'm not sure if comparing different
classes easily is that important?
Please share your thoughts on this with the trainers mailing
list! And remember to get your agreements in.
