The other day at an exhibition I heard one of my local students talk about the online learning experience. Not a young man as you might expect, but a retired man now putting all his energy and love into bonsai.
What he told another guest was to stop saying that you cant learn bonsai online. You can! He recently signed up for my courses, and that comment made me smile.
The advantage of online learning is that you can watch over and over again. We zoom in on details, and you can do it whenever it suits you.
Play it on your smartphone tablet and use it as a podcast if you like. Sit with a cup of coffee and just get inspired.
Remember you always can use the members Q&A for Pro members and ask your questions directly.
The October bonsai Magazine is a package of five videos concentrating on what you can do in your bonsai garden this month.
Getting back to the comments it also confirmed we do things alright with the tutorials and lectures. Therefore I am happy with that comment and all the kind e-mails or messages coming in about the quality and content put online.
Anyway, I always seek to improve. I will at any time be glad to receive requests on topics not yet touched, and add that to the idea catalogue. So we can improve and learn together.
