Professor John J. Donovan was asked by the chairman of AT&T to introduce a series of courses that would train his customer service representatives and sales people in computing and information technologies. He developed a series of four two week courses which some 5,000 students attended. In addition to that, they were conducted in a holistic environment to allow these students to be exposed to the most advance technology and art, literature, music, and American history. The following video captures that entire experience.
That same technical training continues today with companies such as Samsung.
