A Light At the End of the Tunnel?

Yes, there actually may be a light at the end of the tunnel! And hopefully, *fingers crossed* it isn't a freight train.....

We have been working constantly, shedding blood, sweat, and tears on this new system that we are switching over to. Even though it won't go "live" until Summer 2013, we have a handful of classes piloting it this upcoming Spring semester. Which means we have to have things ready for the students in the pilot classes.Like an orientation to train them how to use the new system.

Which is my baby.

The drop-dead date for having this ready to go? TODAY.

Is it ready to go? It will be, before the work day is done.

The last 2-1/2 months have been brutal. Not only still working with our current system, but trying to learn the admin side of the new program, develop training materials for instructors, and creating a whole new student training from the ground up. Yes, BRUTAL.

I have lost sleep, I have cried many tears, thrown a few things (yes, literally have just let things fly), and threatened to drop-kick my computer down the hallway and back again.

But it's A-L-M-O-S-T finished now. Just putting on the last few "tweaks" and then turning it over to the "big guys" to get the students in it.

Wish me luck!
