Yesterday's (Tuesday, October 19, 2010) advanced Legacy class and webinar was the most fun I have had in years. As you know, we wanted to test and push the boundaries of genealogy technology to broadcast the class to the rest of the world - and it worked!
In Youngtown, Arizona, I taught the 3rd class of a 4 week Advanced Legacy Course to a classroom of 20 students. We were also able to broadcast the class live - to all of you - via our new webinar technology. For me, the best part of the class was taking your calls. We had callers from all over the world - France, England, Ohio and more. I wish you could have all been there personally to see the expressions on the faces of the students when they heard our first caller say, "Good evening" (it was about 11am our time). We soon found out she was calling from France.
We made history yesterday - broadcasting a genealogy and Legacy Family Tree class to a group of students and to hundreds of others from around the world. Thanks everyone for participating. I predict that this "experiment" will change genealogy education forever. Thanks to the West Valley Genealogy Society for letting us broadcast one of their workshops.
