Similarly, it would be possible to bring along TV programmes and movies to fill any voids when all you've got on offer is local TV. In my role as a consultant, it is hard to completely cut yourself off from business-related communication while on holiday, so the ability to receive all my emails and blog feeds was useful, along with access to my Evernote database and Google docs. I didn't mean to get an iPad. I've even written rather cynical posts about it.

Although we could have provided a “live” training session via a tool like Adobe Connect, the movie worked out even better. In addition to providing our testers with a movie, we also provided them with an Excel spreadsheet that served as a “browser testing plan.” We also watched the Google Docs spreadsheet, looking for possible misunderstandings – either in terms of filling out the spreadsheet incorrectly or misunderstanding how the courses were supposed to function.
