Re: Extending the App-in-a-box event!

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.216.66

I have some crazy suggestions.

-Make the training a month long ( or more if need be)
-Only 3-4 days a week
-Teach the same thing for the 1st and 2nd day of the week
-Give  the students a class-work in the third day, but allow them to "cheat"
-Give them an assignment for the next week (allowing them to choose a very
simple web designing project in the first week and dividing it into  small parts - a part for each week)
-Allow (but don't mandate) them to present their accomplishment at the end
of the course (a simple demo can also be motivating)
-Have fun!
