Small businesses: Take advantage of technology education resources

Technology plays a critical role in the success of small businesses, and some chambers of commerce have made technology education a priority for members, writes Cindy Bates on the Microsoft SMB Blog.

The Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce and the DC Chamber of Commerce, for example, recently introduced the e-learning Global Classroom platform, designed to help small businesses become more tech savvy. “These cloud-based custom portals offer hundreds of online courses and thousands of video tutorials from technology and business leaders including Microsoft, Franklin Covey, Emily Post and WIN Learning,” she writes.
