Having never been to an online workshop I was wondering how it works. Do I need to be online by at a certain time or just when I have time that day? I am interested, but I would like to know if I need to make sure that I am on the computer(and not one of the kids or my husband). Unfortunatly we only have one computer hooked up to the internet right now. So I might have to schedule time on it. Thanks.

It will be fine if you drop in when you can. You don't even have to stop by every day. Angie and I will post lectures every other day for you to read at your leisure. Then the next day will be devoted to questions people post on the forum, and looking at people's homework assignments. No assignment is going to be more than 250 words long, so they won't be too labor intensive.

We know people will be doing the marathon, so we're doing our best to make sure it is easy for everyone to fit the workshop in when they have a second.

All of our classes are done in an asynchronous environment, which is tech talk for the concept that people don't have to be online at the same time to take classes together.

As Jess said, lectures will be posted, and you just come along and read them, ask questions, and post homework whenever you can, whether that's sneaking onto a computer at lunchtime or posting in the wee hours before breakfast. Whatever works best for you.
