very first year in TAW. A year full of achievements, setbacks, ... A year to
dwell on and a year to be proud of. As a celebration, we listed some of the
most remarkable moments in EDU’s still very young history.
day Sentinel became EDU. The beginning of a new chapter, filled with innovative
ways of providing education for the massive online-gaming community called TAW.
months of discussing content, creating material, and receiving approval, EDU launched
the Online Classes for all TAW members to use. The classes have become a huge success
with over 4000 classes started.
EDU is still very motivated to keep this online platform going and invites all
members of TAW to contribute to the classes through delivering feedback. EDU is
constantly making small improvements to the classes from the feedback we receive.
Your feedback means another step closer to a better experience for all of TAW
March 11, EDU held their first University Class. A huge number of people showed
up and gave positive feedback (A special thanks to Cherry for giving the
presentation). A recording of this event can be found here. EDU has already
begun creating more University Classes for everyone in TAW to enjoy, be on the lookout
for the following topics in the next few months: Dealing with Drama, Public
Speaking, Chain of Command, and Communication & Organization. Stay tuned for an announcement regarding the date and time for the next one!
in April, EDU finished and released the first of many new and/or updated TAW Guides. The first guide,
which covers Website Navigation, should help many of you with common tasks of
reporting events, taking attendance, and much more. This guide can be found here or on the
TAW Guides channel in TeamSpeak. More guides will be released soon, more specifically a new Boot Camp Guide, Presentation and Script.

“I am very proud of what my EDU-team has produced, and am excited for what the future holds. A big OOR-AH for EDU, may this be the first year of many more to come!”

“I would like to thank all of EDU,
current and past members, for putting in hundreds of hours to research and
write the Online Classes, Guides and Universities. I hope that all of TAW can
use the resources that EDU has provided to better themselves inside of TAW with
the online classes and outside of TAW with Universities such as Servant
Leadership, Public Speaking, Dealing with Drama and more. I am looking forward
to another great year with EDU and can't wait to see what happens next.”
Cherry [CC OC]
“Last Spring [or Fall for those on
the other side of the globe] Ops decided to make one of the largest cultural
changes TAW has ever seen...change Sentinel to EDU. The old Sentinel stigma of ‘where games go to
die’ needed to be changed as well as the evolution into the future of online
learning to support this great community.
It wasn’t an easy task as cultural changes within an organization never
are. Through countless hours of sharing
my vision and goals, the tide began to turn.
The trust they bestowed upon me and our leadership team was unmatched
and for that I am forever grateful. As
we began to lay the new foundation it became evident it was a monumental task
and my vision became a shared vision. To
not only learn a new online learning management system to but simply put the
huge volume of content from the original platform into the LMS wasn’t easy and
took countless hours of ‘all hands on deck’ work to pull off and boy-howdy did
they ever. Now with the courses all
online, this enables EDU to continue their work with TAW U’s and TAW Guides as
well as prepare for the learning curve of an entire new website coming
soon. The true servant leadership
exhibited and #rollyoursleevesup hard work paid off for this great
community. With the biggest risk comes
the biggest gain.”
Thank you everyone. For everything.
Feedback remains to be a vital part of our endeavors in trying to keep our content at the highest quality-level we try to uphold it to.
