New Skooling

So, I'm currently at Ft. Jackson, SC attending my 42A Senior Leaders Course.

Been here for two weeks and it has gone fast.

The school house seems to be stuck between trying to do things the "old way" and do things the "new way". They have the capability of conducting all of the classes and exams online. They do some of them, but the kinks aren't worked out. The software goes down. Tests time out. Other technological unpleasantness. Things which undermine the students' trust in the system. Which is probably the worst thing about it.
