It is great to see more training becoming available online and Canon's training has always been excellent, but you often had to travel to find it.
But now, you can gain knowledge any where and any time.
I haven't yet had the pleasure of testing out any of these new Canon offerings, but I have been to their on-site training before and it was worth attending. The first courses are photography based and I suspect there will be some video courses coming.
