I taught my first Intro to the Internet class today (prior to today I was merely assisting our lead instructor). Four enthusiastic students spent a hour and then some learning that "Surfing the Web" isn't nearly as athletic a pursuit as it sounds. Our newest volunteer instructor Cathy was assisting me...soon she will be teaching this course by herself as well. Next week I get to learn how to teach our Intro to Google Docs course so that I can teach it solo in November.

Finally! A decent, working wireless G router was donated this week. It was tested and reconfigured earlier this afternoon and now we have public Wi-Fi in the Education Center. All we need now is a new sign to let everyone know it's available. Hopefully one day soon we'll get an wireless N router...but this is great for now!
