    Default Anyone interested in (free) virtual training with me?

    I'm trying to get into training, and I'm looking for some guinea pigs. I haven't thought too much about the logistics yet; I'm just curious if there'd be any interest. It'd probably just be a couple of hours a week, maybe on a Friday or Saturday evening since I'm a loser (just kidding - that'll be negotiable). I'm thinking about going over 291/293 material, subnetting, etc. I'd be open to any suggestions as far as content goes, software to use to deliver the content, etc.

    TIA.

    I'm game, especially if you're covering 291/293 topics - at least one of those is on the horizon for me. As for suggestions on the logistics...well, that depends - what is it that you want to "deliver" content-wise? Do you want to share your desktop or distribute content files beforehand? How long do you want the training to go on for? There are trial subscriptions to Live Meeting (either 14 or 30 days) and WebEx (14 days), but I'm sure there must be other options out there. Meeting Space would work for small groups, but we'd have to set up a separate conference call to get audio and there's no video. I do have some links for free conference call services - I'll dig those up if you want.

    I'm interested as well. I was just going to start to tackle the beast. Any way I can help, I will.

    I'd volunteer as well but I would just be the annoying kid in the back who heckles the teacher constantly.

    I'd definitely want to allow people to see my desktop, be able to distribute slides, etc. I was thinking about Live Meeting or WebEx anyway. I'll run through the trials and figure something out; don't worry about digging up that other stuff. Thanks!

    You'd be more than welcome. It'd be nice to have someone verify that I wasn't just making stuff up

    Maybe I'll setup a test Q&A this weekend or something just to see how things go. I'm fairly busy at the moment, so I'm sort of torn between how much material to prepare in advance vs. how frequent to have these sessions. Maybe we'll just kinda wing it for awhile

    If anyone has any specific topics they'd like to discuss, feel free to throw them out. Please do the same for times. Week nights? Morning on the weekends? Let me know what works for you. I'm typically available most times outside of work and Tues and Weds evenings.

    Also, try to get a mic/headset as well. I'd prefer a lot of interaction; I don't want to just lecture.

    It's $70/mo ($60/mo if you prepay a year), which is a bit higher than I wanted, but it's manageable. From what I've looked at thus far, that is the one I'm leaning towards.

    I vote for Citrix's GoToMeeting (at $49/mo - I can probably get you a better price too), I've used the others (LiveMeeting and WebEx) many times before, and while LiveMeeting is actually my favorite, it's just too damn expensive. I always end up comming back to G2M year after year.

    Am I looking at this right?

    It looks like LiveMeeting will cost $25/mo for the standard version and $75/mo for the pro version. That seems to be in the same ballpark.

    I'll just post dates, times, and any other relevant information in this thread a few days in advance. It'll be open to everyone who wants to participate...

    ...except junior members. You need to have at least 100 posts. Just kidding

    That was my assumption as well.

    There's been a lot of good suggestions; maybe we can demo a different one each week. While I'd obviously like to keep the cost down as much as possible, I'm more concerned with functionality. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for the responses everyone
