    I had a "failed" workshop and here are some of the reasons I think it
    didn't work:

    1. we were to watch the series individually and discuss it later - this was
    to accomodate different schedules and locations)

    2. it was free of consequences so no value or urgency was placed on

    3. it was the first Annenberg course online I had done and the first
    exposure to any Annenberg product for the others. I was unable to convey
    all the extras that resulted as a part of participating in a workshop and
    the others just did not know of the quality of the programs. I am taking my
    third course now and my family has to listen to me when I have all my
    excitement afterward.
