Live class times changed
Last Update: May 24, 2023
Last night I was surprised to find I was late to the live class. In the discussion with the instructor, Tim, it was revealed that moving the classes an hour earlier across the board was going to be the new way forward.
I was a bit dismayed on learning this, due to my schedule working the night shift. I often will catch the classes as I'm waking up with coffee under the 8:00 P.M. Eastern time U.S., but 7:00 really isn't feasible for me most of the time.
It was a fluke I caught last nights class, due to some sleep issues I was having.
I appreciate Tim was open to feedback from not just myself, and reached out to Kyle during the live class and got his classes moved back to 8:00.
I also see that tonight's class with Eric Cantu will still be at 8:00. for which I'm really grateful. He is training us on YouTube, and if you haven't caught any of them yet you should really get to them as he is covering so much.
I'll miss being at the classes that stay on the new schedule.
This is a me issue, but I found it easier to watch the live classes than sifting through previous classes and choosing. It was predictable, fit in somewhat with my schedule although I'll admit there were times I had to listen more than watch as I prepared for work.
But it offered me some structure, which is likely one of my top issues still when it comes to blogging. I really still suck with time management, especially when coupled with deciding on paths forward in this vast array of paths moving forward.
I had found dedicating myself to the live classes nullified a lot of that indecision for me as the topics were already chosen for me, the time slots to dedicate as well.
I believe more is learned in the live classes than replay as well.
There are often many questions that take place in the live chat that those watching replay will never experience. Many times another person asking a question that raises new questions which turns into its own little discussion.
It makes me wonder
Can WA at some point incorporate a live discussion feature like live YouTube has? That way those who watch the replay can still see these many questions and discussions. I at times have learned as much from those discussions than the video, because the instructors can drill down on smaller issues that weren't possibly in the video. Those small tangents experts might overlook that a newb like me is having a major duhh moment with, hah hah.
I'm going to wrap this one up, enough of my whining over spilt milk. I'll miss the camaraderie with many of you in those classes for the ones that are at 7;00 now instead of 8:00. I've really learned a lot, and at times in thanks to those of you who've been my fellow students asking questions I would never have thought to ask.
Hope everyone has had a nice day.
My weekend has started, and although I have a lot of running and chores to do the next few days, I'm going to be focusing on that pillar post as well as being active here.
