Amanda Phillips is 19 and is at the Hubbs Center preparing for her licensing test as a certified nursing assistant, combining a face-to-face prep class with Learner Web to help her study. She works up to 34 hours a week at a Wendy’s, so being able to do some of her work online really helps. “I probably spend 30 minutes or an hour on it every day. You can study the vocab, watch videos, take pre-quizzes.” She calls herself a “computer whiz,” is acing her class, and says she likes coordinating her work with her teacher. “With Learner Web and Quia [a self-quiz site, listed in section C] she can look at both and see what we’ve done. She can see how many times we took the pre-quiz, see how we’re doing. If we need to study more she’ll let us know.”
