The Big Reveal!

Post by messydesk » Tue Jun 02, 2020 5:53 pm

So the Big Tease generated a good amount of interest, so now let's see what the Big Reveal does .

On July 8, from 12:00-2:00 pm MDT, the ANA eLearning Academy will be presenting Collecting and Investing in Morgan Dollars. This will be a 2 hour version of the 22 hour in-person class that would have been taught at the ANA Summer Seminar this summer. Michael Fey and I will be conducting this over Zoom through the ANA.

As it is greatly abbreviated, we'll be covering material in far less depth, but it will give a flavor of the things we do in person in the classroom. Obviously, we can't pass coins around, either. We'll try to answer a few questions during the class, but what we can do there will depend on the number of students. We want to give you a taste of what you'd experience in person.

As this is the ANA's first attempt at this we're both excited and a little anxious as to how this will go and how it will be received.

Normally, you need to be an ANA member to participate in the Summer Seminar, but this year, the ANA eLearning Academy has been made available for FREE for everyone. In addition to the Morgan class, you can take some of the other classes they're offering for FREE at various times during the two weeks from the end of June to early July, including grading, counterfeit detection, the modern minting process, and others.

Very cool JB! Great of them to do it this way, and making it free. I smell some intense interest in next years actual Summer Seminar due to this if its a hit! 😎

Messy, Thanks to all concerned. This may give VAMming a boost.

That's a great piece of news. I have to wonder if this is a platform that will continue. It would open a door for students and possible instructors that aren't able to take a week or so to travel to Colorado.

This is a pilot program, with several 2-hour and several 1-hour sessions available chosen from those classes that were being offered this year. They will be recording this, and most likely making the recording available permanently somehow. If this turns out to work well, It would make sense that they would want to expand their offerings available this way, building up their library of recorded classes, while not taking away from the demand for the in-person Summer Seminar. I imagine that some classes that might not ever be viable in person due to instructor availability and/or student demand might be ideal to do this way.

Congrats to JB with the virtual webinar. I will try to watch it live, but a replay would be better. Tough to ear Mark 2 hours in the middle of a work day. :ugeek:
