I'm very happy to report the blogger's class yesterday went just great! There is nothing more gratifying to a speaker than to see a room full of expectant faces! We actually ran out of chairs and had to get some more from another room.
These people were motivated, interested, and had plenty of very intelligent questions.
For those of you who've wondered about the site I set up for them, it's here:
This blog contains the basic outline for the class, with all the links and bloggers we talked about during the session. We held the workshop in a room without online access, and I worked from four sheets of paper. No PowerPoint. I like the way it worked out, because when you have a roomful of people all sitting in front of computers, or even with a single main screen, this tends to become distracting and the interaction between participants gets diluted.
Like so much else online, it is a work in progress, as there will be more classes of this kind to follow!
