Since we are still in the planning phase of such training, we would appreciate your feedback.
What content would you like in such a training?
How should the training program be made?
How much interaction with the instructor would be needed? (important for the pricing of the service)
Other inputs on how we can conduct online training with eZ publish?
This can help us make a better training.

Before we can see how interactive the sessions might be I have a few questions relating to the suitability of the ez training courses for online courses. Here I am referring to already existing material that will be presented to students during the training courses being given in a few weeks time.
- Can this material easily go online?
- What percentage of a trainers time will be needed to explain this material to students on this course?
- From the above answers how much more documentation needs to be written to match the estimated time an online trainer could spend with a student per price plan?
- Could this possibly feed into the ez documentation in some manner, such as free tutorials...

I guess the best would be interactive tutorials/modules targeted at different user/admin levels and skills required. Also the interactivity could be with different levels: from multiple choice review questions at different stages to more complicated assignments with instructor feedback.
Modules could include:
For "new" users:
1) Basic setup and administration
2) Basic template language and possibilities
3) Creating classes and associated template functionality
4) Multi-language aspects
5) Implementing workflow/ creating new events/triggers
6) Creating operators and new datatypes and show the possibilities to expand functionality with a minimum of programming
7) Creating new modules
8) Create new handlers for existing modules
9) Using SOAP and other ways of connecting ez publish to the outside world (I mean other software)
For levels of interactivity:
- multiple choice review questions (no instructor)
- minimal feedback by instructor on assignments (on the end-result only, pointing to possible improvements)
- thorough guidance, but I guess that's what the support system is meant for.

I guess that the more time you spend on "self-explaining" exercises together with solid study material the less time each student demands from the instructor.
The online courses may well come with a final exam which is tied up with a certification scheme (which motivates the user AND put a quality check on the course).
