A SARS Proof Education Medium
In SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) hit countries across Asia, daily activities, normally taken for granted, have been rudely disrupted. Many hospitals, schools, offices, factories and entertainment outlets have been temporarily shut down or quarantined in the fight to contain the spread of SARS.
The threat of disruption to their education and examination schedules is very real for students in SARS hit countries. Already a number of schools and universities have been temporarily shut down. However, one group of students can confidently carry on with their studies, course projects and exams without even the slightest threat of disruption by SARS. They are the students of Purple Train.
PurpleTrain.com is the e-learning service provider which offers a one-stop service for business and IT education programs, corporate training courses and education-related services.
