Class Completed

On Saturday, Nov. 17th, I led a class covering the benefits of sharing digital photos online. Much preparation was invested in curriculum development. Five members of the public and two staff members participated in the class. A few technical difficulties were encountered between my laptop, the Internet connection and the projector. I learned that testing all the technology components before the class is absolutely necessary. Also, using the same machine and the same Internet browser as class participants might contribute to smoother timing and delivery.
