Today, the ECG Guru is one year old. We are so happy that the Guru and the concept of helping ECG Instructors has been successful. Through this website, we have met so many ECG Gurus all around the world, and have made some wonderful like-minded friends. The website has had 23,995 visitors, many of them returning frequently for total visits well over 30,000. There have been 86,543 page views from 146 countries. The Guru has been viewed in 96 languages.
Our companion FaceBook page has reached 1,000 "likes" and continues to grow. We are active on LinkedIn.
Dawn, Jason, and Steven have worked very hard to realize the goal of providing free and copyright free materials for ECG instructors. In addition, we have provided information for ECG students of all levels, from basic to advanced. We have ECGs, illustrations, photos, links to other ECG sites, forums, and an Ask the Expert page. Jason has provided a chance for teachers and students alike to test their skills and have some fun with challenging concepts. Dawn concentrates on providing materials that every instructor needs for their classes. Steven has made it all happen with a very complex and beautiful Drupal site that accommodates all the rich content that we add.
Our many thanks to our Experts: Dr. Ken Grauer, who is an ECG Guru beyond compare - who is able to take the most complex topics and make them understandable to all levels of students. He was generous to give freely of his expertise when the Guru was an infant, and he helped us provide the quality content we desired. Also, Dr. Marge Bowers, EdD, RN, EMT-P; Darlene Hutton, RN, BScN, MSN, and Christopher Watford, BSc, NREMT-P have provided the benefit of their knowledge and experience to answer our "Ask the Expert" questions - free of charge for the benefit of students and teachers worldwide.
We hope, in the coming year, we will continue to grow and to provide materials needed by ECG instructors and their students. Please feel free to contact us regarding images or information you would like to see on the Guru. You may use the Contact feature on this page, or email us at ECGGuru@Comcast.net.
THANKS, EVERYONE, FOR A REALLY GREAT YEAR.
