Tech Watch: Improve Your Technology Skills Online
Overwhelmed trying to keep pace with technology, or attempting to master the tools that can transform your career? The educational resources you need are readily available online. The latest product updates, instructional videos, insightful advice from your peers—it’s all there, once you decide what you need to know and have some idea where or how to find it.
“The problem for most is deciding what to look at first,” says Randy Eager, CRS, GRI, and president and founder of Computer Camp, which offers real estate technology training. “There’s just so much available now.”
When Eager started the company in 1989, his training focused on merely two real estate software programs that were available at the time. Today, real estate professionals have a much larger array to choose from in specialty software, communications, and marketing technologies, and a range of hardware—computers, cell phones and smartphones, digital cameras, GPS, wireless networks, and multi-function machines.
