I think people left the room enthused. A colleague whose arm I twisted to attend the course (when I was worried it wasn’t full - in the end it was overfull) thanked me for getting her along. I’m planning to meet with another colleague in the near future to take some of the training into real concrete action. And that’s the best feedback of all.
Which is very gratifying to hear.
I think there is a real need for fairly basic overview sessions like this one, introducing people to some of key aspects of this social web thing: not just what the tools are and what they do, but some of the philosophy behind it all.
