With very promising plans for 2017, EDU is currently looking out for members of our beloved community who are ready to go on a very exciting, educational tour and become a part of our team!
Being a instructor will require a lot of hard work and dedication. You will have to be trained to teach in front of an audience and contribute in the creation of educational endeavors, so that you may in turn help all members of The Art of Warfare (TAW) become familiar with the structure of our community. You will also learn what each position’s role is and how it may interact with other positions and the Chain of Command (CoC). If you are interested in joining the TAW Education team, there are some requirements that you must meet.
You have been in multiple positions at a Battalion or Divisional level.
You are a good, clear, and confident speaker to a group of individuals.
You own a decent headset that is clear and that will allow you to be easily heard and understood.
You are in a good standing with your current Chain of Command.
You need to show up on our mandatory staff meetings on a regular basis: Sunday 14:00 GMT-4 or 20:00 GMT+2;
You have the time to dedicate towards teaching position related classes to other members of TAW, working on updating documents and presentations, assisting with TAW University and much more.
If you meet the requirements and you are accepted to the EDU team, you will be transferred from your current division to the TAW EDU Division. There, you will be initially placed as a Training Instructor. This is the training phase that EDU has for all new trainers to be trained to be able to teach classes confidently and clearly as well as finding their ‘spot’ within our team.
With a wonderful 2016 to look back at, EDU looks forward to welcoming a new year
of more and better things to come for all of TAW.
For 2017, we will make one simple resolution.
EDU will create more content than ever before...
The Online Courses were just a start...
...so stay tuned for much much more to come.
So with only one day left in 2016, we wish you all the best for 2017.
May this New Year be filled with whatever you want it to be filled with!

Completion of a section can be triggered in two ways.
Sometimes the test may take some time to register changes that were made shortly after the first time you tried submitting. If you see an EDU Instructor online, feel free In this case, patience will be all that it needs.
Currently, we are facing issues with automatically rewarding the certificates for the SUL Class. As a temporary measure an EDU Instructor will be manually rewarding the certificates. That does however take some time and we hope to count on your understanding and patience. With the SUL Class being checked every evening, certificates should be coming to you the day after completion at the latest.
TL;DR E-courses up and running again! New format! Updated content! New Tabs and Badges! And much much more!! Link to the website at the bottom! Reading this blog post is strongly advised ;-)
On the 18th of August, EDU took a revolutionary step into the future of TAW and opened the world of MOOC’s (Massive Open Online Courses) to our fellow members of TAW. An idea that provides an online database, accessible and ready-to-use for everyone, 24/7. In only one month, the numbers rose in such an astonishing speed and got to heights we could’ve only dreamed of. Below, a graph shows you which classes were taken the most since the launch of our online courses. In total, good for 937 Students already for TAW Education Center.
Together with the Information Specialist and the just recently launched Security Awareness Test, the Online Learning Platform of TAW counts 1171 Students.
During the months September; October and November our team was busy creating and updating our online content into a brand new format. All of that according to the most recent position changes that were made by Army Command in August. (Check this link for more information or this link)
To celebrate this whole new set of courses, we created new Tabs and Badges to give out. These will distinguish the new courses from the old ones. Requirements are mentioned below.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL PROGRESS HAS BEEN RESET. If you want to to receive the commendations below, you will have to re-read all of the content and complete the new and updated tests that go along with it!
* with the exception of the Information Specialist and Security Awareness course.
For every time you complete a class on the Openlearning website,
you will receive the EDU - Online Classes tab. The maximum amount
of the following tab to be given out is 12.
Once you have completed all 12 courses and received the tabs
that go with it. You will be granted only Online Academy Badge (Link).
A sign of great perseverance and a never ending hunger to learn!
Your feedback matters! Nobody or nothing is perfect, therefore
we invite you to give us, EDU, feedback on the Open Learning
at all times. This will allow an ever-growing, better learning experience for all of TAW!
Click here to give feedback!
To provide all members in TAW with an easy way to acces the website,
the following "University" button on the homepage will refer you to our Online Education Center
wiki-page. This wiki will provide you with everything you need to successfully use Openlearning.
With all of that said, we are happy to present to you our brand new, updated Online courses!
- The TAW Education Center Team
We have closed the online classes for right now. All of the new classes are finished and waiting for corrections and approval from Army Command. Once they are finished we will update the classes and get them back up and running. There is no current ETA on when they will be back up. If you have any questions please feel free to shoot me an email or find me online.
Also, we are going to make some new shiny's for all of you to get just for completing the new classes.
We will be temporarily taking the SO, XO and CO classes down on the Open Learning website. There will be some changes to the SOP's and how each position flows within TAW and we will put them back online once we finish the changes to those classes. The other classes will remain up and running because the changes made will not drastically affect the way each position functions within TAW. We will finish these classes as quickly as possible so your patience is appreciated.

TAW Education Center here, with a few very exciting and promising announcements for you.
A while ago, our Unit went through quite a few changes. After a lot of hard work and tons of feedback we managed to get to a point where we are excited to finally present to you :
EDU stands for TAW Education Center. For 2 years now, our Unit has upheld a continuous effort to deliver courses to our members and build on the future leadership for TAW.
To ensure a high-quality learning environment for our members. We wanted to create something new, something exciting. Something that this great community deserves.
With that mindset, we created our online platform.
For more information, please refer yourself to our previous Blog Post : Here
The main reason for transitioning, is to standardize all teaching for everyone, giving all members the opportunity to have access to all classes 24 hours a day instead of only once or twice a month.
For those who prefer getting taught by listening to one of our Instructors, please get a hold of us on Teamspeak.
The courses can be found by clicking on one of the two URLs below. By going to our wiki's. Or by looking at EDU - < Online Education Center > on teamspeak!
Do not worry, we have created a tutorial for all of our members to access and allow them to succesfully complete your online courses.
Simply refer yourself to here!
The Openlearning website is still a work in progress. While you are completing these courses, please give us feedback through comments or e-mails so improvements can be made.
With lots of changes as well as a promising future for our community ahead, TAW Education Center is looking for a few extra members to reinforce our team in the near future and ensure a continuous excellence in creating a learning environment.

As some of you may or may have not noticed, TAW Sentinel has been renamed to TAW Education Center or EDU. Along with the name change our teaching format is also undergoing major changes.
The courses we've been teaching in EDU at this time will finally be going on an interactive online teaching platform. You will be able to read the material, then take a quiz on the material and receive a certification if you pass. The material may later be updated to include text, audio and visual presentations. What this means is that you have now the option to take classes without having to come up to EDU and schedule one with our staff. We will still provide traditional teaching to individuals that prefer to learn that way.
The courses go through Alpha and Beta with the courses so if you see them in Alpha or Beta, they're NOT live and awardable.
We are recruiting EDU members to help manage and develop the Learning Management System.
