AKRON, OH Babcox Publications has announced the redesign of the Tomorrow’s Technician (T2) website — www.tomorrowstechnician.com providing users with improved navigation, an in-depth training center section, community-based postings and other exciting features for both students and instructors.
The redesigned website enables quick access to back issues, along with an improved article/content search function. Other materials, such as printable T2 Crossword Puzzles and Pop Quiz documents, are now archived in an easily accessible format.
“The redesign of the Tomorrow’s Technician website allows greater interaction between students and their peers, as well as between students and the various automotive product and equipment suppliers and manufacturers,” said Beth Skove, associate publisher of Tomorrow’s Technician. “The site provides training videos and instruction materials in the Training Center, reader-loaded videos and photos in the Flix and Pix room, a Career Center, automotive blogs, the latest news for students such as scholarship opportunities, fun polls asking and measuring their opinions and improved article printing capabilities.
“Students can sign into the T2 community and immediately comment on and rate the blogs, training materials, Flix and Pix, etc.,” Skove said. “We have also activated an ‘e-mail-to-a friend’ function, where links to articles can be sent to anyone with an e-mail address.”
Skove, who authors the Tomorrow’s Technician blog, one of the three blogs currently housed on the website, said the new website will create better opportunities for students as they begin their careers in the various automotive aftermarket fields.
“This website provides a valuable service to our readers and the aftermarket. We provide a wealth of technical content that has been supplied by Babcox magazines and the automotive industry, as well as the job opportunities that will be listed in the Career Center. It’s a one-stop shop for anyone interested in learning more about technical repair work and/or a career in our industry,” Skove said. “These resources help supplement the instructors’ curriculum as they prepare students for the real-work environment. Plus, it’s just a cool website for student technicians to call their own.”
