The flickr Fifteen
This morning I taught our first official flickr class in the technology center. We asked for registration, but somehow this beautiful flier designed by our PR department left off that detail and I missed it during proofreading. The funny thing is that even though we only had 9 people register with 7 of them actually showing up, we still ended up with an overflow crowd of 15 thanks to this poster. It was my fault for not catching this sooner and so I did my best to accomodate 15 students in our 12 seat lab.
Everyone was willing to share a computer so that no one had to leave. Next week several people will bring their own laptops and use our wireless connection so that we will have enough computers to go around. I will also have one of my tech assistants help me teach so that we can be more hands on. Problem solved.
What really amazed me about the participants was how savvy they already were with photo sharing. Out of the 15 students only 2 had never done any online photo sharing before. Most had used 1.0 photo sites and 1 even had already set up their flickr account. Also, only 3 people needed to set up Yahoo! accounts.
Next week is the second class and I hope that all of my flickr 15 return for more flickr fun.
