I’m advertising for a customer, a private college in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to help recruit full time or part time lecturers for their computer programming classes.
So if you or anyone you know can teach Java or VB.NET, please contact me here and I will forward it your contact details to the college. The college will contact you once shortlisted.
By the way, the college principal asked me whether I could do the job. Of course I can’t! The only programming language I’m still in touch with is PHP with MySQL. The rest? I’ve given all back to my lecturers!
Have you ever come across a Malaysian Chinese’s blog in Bahasa Melayu?
Yes I have. But very few. Now, for those bloggers who are proficient in our national language, this could be a good strategy to differentiate yourself. Blog in Malay, and attract search engine traffic from the Malay Internet users!
I feel each race has got things to share with others, and at the same time learn from them as well. By writing in Malay, perhaps non-Malays can better communicate with the Malay readers and learn from them too!
Well, should I blog in BM also? But my proficiency in the language is really rotten now! Perhaps bloggers can consider my suggestion?
What is Web 2.0 like?
In tradition Web 1.0, it is like a class where the teacher teaches the subject matter and students receive. Students may ask questions occasionally and the teacher will answer. It is basically a one-way or two-way communication. Relationships exist between the teacher and each individual student. The teaching materials are produced by the teacher him/herself.
But in Web 2.0, the teacher plays more of a facilitator’s role. The students discuss among themselves on the subject matter. Communication flows to and fro in many channels. Relationships exist not only between the teacher and students, but among the students as well. The teaching materials are produced by the students themselves as they learn and are guided by the teacher.
This is just an analogy of Web 2.0. What do you think Web 2.0 is like?
I attended a full-day paid seminar on “Internet Marketing 2.0 for Millionaires” by eOneNet.com, said to be the number 1 Internet marketing company in Asia. I expected to learn more about Web 2.0 technologies to improve my online businesses.
I am glad to have heard their founder Fione Tan speak. She is a reputable expert and coach on Internet marketing, who has been running successful online businesses herself and so is an authority to speak on the subject matter.
The seminar gave us the basics of Internet marketing. Fione even motivated us to go for the gold in Internet business. Just look at her lifestyle. So enviable! Furthermore, her presentation was excellent and humorous, making us laugh from the beginning to the end.
However, I think the seminar was more suited for beginners as the content covered was quite basic, though it did remind give me some areas which I have overlooked. Frankly, I didn’t learn much about Web 2.0, which was the reason I attended the seminar.
It could have been better if she could teach us more on Internet marketing itself and leave the promotion for their Internet marketing coaching service at the end, instead of inserting advertisements in the sessions. And perhaps speak less on motivation as well.
Anyway, kudos to them for their success in this field. The country is proud of you!
