Steve Maxwell family now teaching online IT courses

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:49 pm by hopewellslibraryoflife

Their new venture, ITonRamp.com is a distance-learning, mentor guided, career facilitating organization. Skill transfer is accomplished by textbooks, video-conferences, and collaborative web forums. ITonRamp is designed to appeal to home-educators, while welcoming all.” Steve Maxwell, a regular on the Chrisitan homeschool circuit, and his son Nathan are offering this venue for learning IT skills.

The learning environment takes into consideration the strict gender segregation required by many Quiverfull parents.  The site says: “At this point we anticipate the mentors to be men. To enable propriety and no possibility of defrauding, direct phone conversations will be from a person of the same gender. Therefore, if there are ladies in a track, the phone call to them will be via a female mentor assistant. The mentor assistant will not have the technical experience that the mentor has, but she will provide the one-on-one personal encouragement that the mentor would have provided.”

The two “tracks” are home computers and A+ Certification preparation. The courses are designed to be both affordable and appropriate to young people coming from Quiverfull-minded homes. From the site:

  • ITonRamp allows the student to focus all his time and energy on his end goal without having to take peripheral courses.
  • ITonRamp is focused on practical, vocational skills as opposed to earning a diploma.
  • ITonRamp avoids the humanistic, evolutionistic, ungodly biases of most colleges.
  • ITonRamp is accomplished in a home-learning environment making it more convenient and cost effective than college. Plus students will avoid the negative influences inherently found on a college campus.”
