Or, what do organisers mean when they say "remote access the class"?
We at the Wellington Makerspace like to share - and the more people we share with the better!
We only have 1 facility suitable for workshops and limited computers/devices and we can only really help 12-15 people at one time per class.
We're going to offer all our classes and workshops [eventually] as 'remote access', which is kinda like skype but means there's tons more people in the room with us.
This actually means that ALL of our digital classes i.e. Pixel Lab and Sculptris, CAD courses, laser software etc can be done from...well...basically anywhere with wifi connection!
Plus you'll be able to do other cool stuff with your own businesses, school projects etc too!
We have a trial set up for 'Sculptris' [3D digital sculpting] in May, but we thought a couple of classes showing how to do everything remotely e.g. signing in, accessing, talking, video, 'hands-up for questioning' and all the good stuff we do in classrooms - before sending you all out on your first solo flight :)
But....We also know that people like people [and coffee/cake etc] so we really want to be able to offer Makerspace-to-Makerspace, or Makerspace-to-school, or even community hall to community hall via our proposed [and in progress] charitable Mobile Maker Van project - so we can keep the 'working together' vibe going!
Sound good? We'd love your feedback as always ;)
