Project The Remote Influencer - Research and Self Directed Learning club.
The beauty and the appeal of Project The Remote Influencer - PTRI, is the fact that it is quite a few things. This keeps things interesting. It is a basic research project, a series of unique self-experiments, a non governmental organization, a web based research organization, a research and self directed learning club, an unincorporated association. PTRI may mutate into other forms too as deemed suitable and/or necessary.
This post will focus upon the research and self directed learning club aspect of PTRI. Have any of you ever been in a school or college club? Being in a club can have great benefits for club members. Knowledge, skills and leadership abilities can be gained from being involved in clubs. Do you like the two photos above? In PTRI, research and self directed learning play a big part in the organization. Most of the research and self directed learning endeavors are accomplished through Internet and Offline research. Hence the photo of the laptop and the library. You could say that PTRI promotes research and self directed learning. Great things can happen through research and self directed learning. One of the other advantages of joining this club is the fact that there are no costs involved. This may change in the future. However, for now, there are no costs involved for members wanting to join. If I do start to charge a membership fee in the future, the costs will be very reasonable. Voluntary membership donations could be a possibility as well. As PTRI is internet based, people from around the world are welcome to join.
The other advantage of joining this club is that there are no extra fees involved for any of the research work that is done. I already pay for my broadband internet service and I own a few laptops. I use the internet and libraries for my research work. I have amassed hundreds of research pdf files over the course of the years. I am adding more pdf files on a regular basis. All of the research work that I had done, and which I am continuing to do, is beginning to pay off.
