My Latest Distraction - creativeLIVE

In a previous post I wrote about taking a digital photography course online. I wanted to share with you what this looks like on my computer. Below you will see that I have three windows open...
...The window on the right is the creativeLIVE window. The upper part of that window is the streaming live class and the lower part is the live chat where questions can be asked during the class and Q&A afterward. The upper left box is for my screen shots. I had started out just taking notes on Notepad, lower left, but I don't type & listen fast enough. I make a brief note with the number of the screenshot that corresponds with that note. That's HOW I attend classes. The classes themselves have been fabulous! I have attended Photoshop classes, Dreamweaver classes... the watercolor class I don't even have a word to describe but I plan on attending the next one in May. If you haven't checked this site out you REALLY should!

I will need to check this out later tonight... this weekend is a busy one (do I ever have a weekend that's NOT busy?? LOL).... but I would love to do something like this. One of my other blogger friends has been taking real photog classes down in OK (Sara from Brit Gal in the USA) and I'm sooo jealous. There's just not enough hours in the day to do all the things I want to do, and that sucks! :-0

OG - I totally understand both the jealousy thing and the time thing. I've wanted to take a photography class every since I got my Canon 40D. Another blogger friend was taking a class online but it was a bit out of my price range. FREE I can handle! :) And the not having enough hours in a day has been a long standing problem.

Bob - I hope you and Oz Girl do check out the classes, I think you'll be as impressed with them as I am.
