How about classes taught on WikiTree?

I'm sure there are lots of people who have specialized knowledge on WikiTree.  Has anyone tried teaching classes, whether live, canned or otherwise just for WikiTree members?  Yes, I know there some that are linked  and things like the self-taught pre 1700 training but it would be fun to attend"official" WikiTree classes.

Dave, what an excellent idea.  As a beginner, less than a week, I would very much appreciate any form of classes.  A good thing to do is email a booklet or download same when a new member joins.  Such a program would be a beginners manual explaining how the site works, what you can do, how to use the drop down menus offered etc etc. I am very slowly coming to grips with the power of the site - it is not easy.

We've thought about doing things like this via something like Google Hangout on Air so it's recorded for anyone to watch anytime.  We could also do videos.  If there's a lot of interest in it, we might consider it more seriously :)

Eowyn. I would love to take a class. There is so much to learn about genealogy and I'm a more visual learner than text learner.

Thank you. for the information.  I'd certainly like to learn more about some of the more technical aspects of genealogy.  I'm good at logic and have been doing genealogy for about 15 years, but I'd like to know a bit more nuts and bolts of sourcing and the like.
I have started a support group where I live so we can help each other which has proved beneficial, just wish we could attract more participants. This group has such a high learning curve.
Hi, it's been a year. Have you guys decided if you will do it? I would love this. However you might need Wikitree 101, 201 and 301 so that the more advanced people don't get frustrated with my dumb newbie questions. I sure hope you guys do this!
