I wanted to have a way of fielding your questions in a way that: a) was easy to do, and b) that allowed everyone to see everyone else’s questions and comment on them, vote them up / down, and perhaps even have some of the more senior students / alumni in our group answer some of the questions directly.
So our tech team came up with a simple approach using Disqus (the discussion platform that we’ll be using throughout the course, as well as on our videos page and throughout the geofflawtononline.com blog posts).
So here’s how you can ask your question / share a comment:
- First, be sure that you are logged in to Disqus (you can either get a separate Disqus account for free, OR you can login by using your Facebook, Twitter, or Google credentials). You log in by clicking on the little circle with the “1” on it, or the word, “Login,” (found at the bottom of this post just where the comments section begins). After clicking either of these, you can then choose how you want to login or sign up.
- Scroll down to the comments section and scan through the questions / comments others have posted. If you see a comment / question you like, you can vote it up so it gets more visibility and has a greater likelihood of being answered. You can also reply to an existing comment or add something to it if you’d like.
- If you don’t see your question there, feel free to add it as a new comment / question.
I will then go through all the questions / comments, select the ones I think will be most helpful to the group, and proceed to answer them. We’ll have the whole thing session recorded, then add it to the Early Bird member section.
So, ask away!
