On-Line Classes – at your own pace!Posted: August 13, 2008
I just completed preparing an online class for Embroidery Academy and I am so very excited. Being able to offer an online class will provide an opportunity for anyone to take classes that I normally teach at dealers and sewing & embroidery events in locations around the country. I will post the Buzz class schedule on my website as well – for now here is the first one: http://www.embroidery-academy.com/MoreInfo/36
I was contacted by Bonnie at the Embroidery Academy a few months ago and I was extremely intrigued with the whole concept of teaching online. All the classes are self paced – you log on and complete the sections on your schedule. I was concerned about the interaction between student/teacher but the website allows for a message board that I will monitor and answer questions as they come up. Just like in a real classroom, the students can also interact with each other. I think it’s a pretty cool and unique concept and I am very excited about this opportunity.
The Embroidery Academy is offering a multitude of classes. This month they are also offering a sweepstakes with some really awesome prizes. If you are at all curious, I encourage you to visit their website and check it out. Why not try it out and sign up for their free class on organizing your sewing room!
