15 October 2011

I'm one of the 14 guest teachers on Tamara Laporte's Life Book course!
Check out the video for some highlights about the course.

... After I made and uploaded the video, I found out that links in YouTube videos can only link within YouTube (and not to an external website, like I had intended) so if you do click the link inside the video, it will take you to my YouTube channel, where you can find a link to my website. Or, you can simply click here, instead :

These are Answers from Tam (Willowing) to the most Frequently Asked Questions about Life Book. If you are still confused, or have other questions, please email her:

Not at all, if you don’t want to. :)

3. Do I have to upload my work?
Not at all, if you don’t want to.

4. Will I get DVDs for the extra classes?
No, you will get access to the ‘self-study’ groups where you can download and keep all the materials.

The group will close officially by the end of March 2013.

6. Can other people continue to sign up throughout the year?
Yes, people can continue to sign up through the year, so spread the word! :-)

Absolutely: you can be as active or inactive as you want to be!

8. Can I get a refund half way through the year (or at any point) if
I’ve decided I no longer want to take part?
No. Refunds can be given before the course starts (before 31st Dec 2011), but refunds can not be given once you’re on the course.

No. If your neighbour or friend wants to take part in the course, they have to sign up themselves and also pay the course fee themselves.

10. I don’t know how to download the videos, can you help?
A description on how to download videos is given alongside every video posted. If that description is still too confusing, please email Tamara Laport : Please note however that detailed advice and lessons on how to navigate IT cannot be offered.
