I have put together dates/times for this winter's GSAK classes, again at the Cloquet Middle School. They will be on Thursdays, starting on the first Thursday of January from 7-8 pm. Each week is a different topic, so as to not overwhelm those that are new to GSAK. You can pick your nights by topic or attend them all! When they get published on the Cloquet Community Ed site, I will post the links:

General Overview: Thu, Jan 5
Building Databases: Thu, Jan 12
Filtering: Thu, Jan 19
Sending to and Receiving from GPS: Thu, Jan 26
Macros: Thu, Feb 2
Tools: Thu, Feb 9
Geocaching.com access: Thu, Feb 16
Retrieving and Publishing Logs: Thu, Feb 23
$4/class​

Wish this offering was closer to NW Minnesota. I would love to learn GSAK, but I can't find anyone to show me the ropes.

I have been looking into on-line ways to do the classes, such as Web-x so that people would be able to do them remotely... just a matter of trying to find a free way to do so...

Could you host a Hangout on Air? Or a live Youtube or live Facebook? Lots of options out there if you have the right setup.

I was looking more at Webex because it allows you to share your screen with the participants, or even a participant can share their screen with everyone else (you can switch off... I accidently did it to one of my instructors, lol). The free version lets 3 people join in... I could also do a free month of the professional version, which allows 50, so I was thinking of trying that and doing some classes this winter.

Google Hangouts allows for screen sharing.
