Followup on my New Class
I had a full house for my first Sharing Photos Online class last Thursday evening. Not even the snow nor the cold kept folks away. No one brought any personal photos in digital format, so I spent the entire class doing a “show and tell” with my own pictures. I was glad that I thought to bring a card reader, several different cameras with different memory sticks, and a flash drive for demonstration purposes. My students seemed as interested in this aspect of the session as in the various web sites I showed them. I was able to upload photos on all four photo-sharing sites in a respectable amount of time. The class was also interested in my use of Photoshop Elements to resize and crop my photos.
If I had to critique myself, I’d be pretty happy with the results. Of course I’ll change the class a bit the next time I do it in March, but folks left after 90 minutes telling me how much they enjoyed the class and how much they learned. I may provide a few more handouts, but that’s about it for now. I had about as much fun as my students did, and that makes for a successful program.
