    woohoo! Congrats!

    Teaching SketchUp was one of my favorite classes. I'm starting a turning one that will likely keep me busy until spring - the signup list keeps on growing

    Congratulations Dave. What a lovely part of this world to be going to teach in. Wish I could get there.

    Are you doing any other courses in 2009. I think I need to get face to face lessons for this package. I am finding the teach myself bit a little challenging. The good old sponge is a bit soaked up after all the years.
    cheers

    Thank you all.

    Rob, I don't know yet about other classes. I'd like to do some others if I could find some venues for them. The one in Port Towsend will be in a computer lab so all of the students will have computers to use. I think I like that idea.

    Hey ever thought of doing remote training via a service such as webex webmeeting. With a tool like this you can share your desktop with all the people that you invite (paid students) and they sit at home at their computers and dial into a free conference service. I taught one of my clients to do this for presentations but you can basically do anything that you can do on your computer over a service like this. Its even possible to have a video camera image in the corner of the screen if wanted.

    If you are interested and dont know how to go about it I can help you on this one send me a pm.
    cheers

    Hi Dave,
    You should be doing this kind of thing. Your knowledge base and considerate way of sharing lend itself to education in the classroom with those who can devote full time to learning what you offer. To your credit , YOU GO GIRL!!!!!!!!!
    Opps, Sorry Ollie , YOU GO BOY!!!!!!!!!

    Bigtime congrats, Dave. Nothing wrong with tootin' your own horn if you have a good song to play. You do, indeed.

    You're in some good company too, from the looks of the instructor list.

    Congratulations Dave. I looked at the other courses being offered and you certainly appear to be in good company. Of course, they are also in good company with you.

    I lived in Seattle for 6 years and never took advantage of courses such as this. Maybe I can arrange to visit friends in June and take in a course or two over on the Olympic Peninsula. You certainly have me thinking about it.
    Cheers, Frank
