The SOT campus is 100% online. The school is in the cloud. All SOT lessons are conducted by email. 24/7/365, email is simply the No1 global business communication platform. SOT EMAILS save time and money. Whether by smartphone while commuting or by PC at work, SOT email allows employees and managers to efficiently manage communications in ways that fit into their time and scheduling at the local level. SOT email lessons are easy to mailbox and can be stored safely, logically and reliably. It's a lot easier to organize emails than paper. Lessons can be accessed quickly and easily for study, thinking and review. SOT email allows students to work at their own speed, rather than under the pressure of a conference call or costly in-person meetings. It also means that a good record of the work is maintained for future reference. Used intelligently, email is the superior training, communication and productivity tool. Feedback from SOT shows students prefer email!
