I had very high hope for this 3rd and final trial run of my future live video soap session I plan to offer. My 2nd trial went really well with only a couple small hick ups that I thought I had everything figure out.
Boy am I so wrong...

The biggest challenge for live video is unfortunately the speed of the internet connection, both download and upload speed. The more people in the same session the faster speed each participant would NEED. Imaging constant streaming video and sound 6 ways for 2 hours! Insufficient internet speed results in constant stalling during the session, and it's proven to be very disturbing, sigh. I have to admit, I really got discouraged. I do love the fact that we can meet soapers all over the world without leaving our homes. It's like I have an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, constantly debating on whether or not to offer online soaping session. I still don't have an answer. Here are some soaps we made from the session:
This is what I made before the class to show participants what to make
