FF Webinar vs CreativeLive?

wondering if anyone can tell me what the difference is between the FF webinar (seen and loved it!) and the CreativeLive course... is it worth doing the CreativeLive as well or does it simply cover same material... currently reading through the FF book at the moment... many thanks

  • The CL course was originally arranged in twelve, 1.5 hour chunks (they've since split it up into ~30 video segments, but the actual class format was in 1.5 hour chunks!).

    I'd say I covered two of those chunks (chunks 1 and 5) in the FF Webinar. The CL course was pretty nuts; we covered *everything*.

  • ok, cool....good to know...

    how does the CL video compare to the book?...is there additional material in the video or is it pretty much covered in the book?

  • @Ronin31: That's a harder comparison. The CL workshop is definitely based on the content of the book, and so there's a lot of overlap there. In terms of truly new material, I'd say the CL workshop deals with the hands-on stuff *much* more than the book (how to actually USE Anki, rather than the theory behind it, and a lot of tips for making the computerized part of this as efficient as possible), it goes into a lot more depth in terms of actually using grammatical mnemonics, and it has a fairly sizable section on motivation that was cut out from an early draft of the book. We also went in some unpredicted directions due to the questions I received - at one point, we decided to spend 20 minutes explaining how to turn a book you want to read into a frequency list, which really came out of left field. :)

    In hearing from people who watched it AND read the book, they told me that even the overlapping material was helpful, because the change in format made it so that they could basically re-learn and better internalize the concepts.

    All in all, I intended the book this website to be adequate for doing this on your own. But the CL workshop out to be a pretty fabulous resource, I'm really proud of what we made, and I think it's going to be pretty useful for anyone who wants a bit more detail about the practical use of this stuff.

  • ok very cool...

    i will definitely look at watching the CL videos then...

    BTW i thought the webinar was fantastic, you definitely made it very personable and interesting...so i am looking forward to more with the CL videos...

    also looking forward to you making an appearance on TED...when could we expect that?...what you are doing with your FF method is far superior to the majority of videos along the same ideas of learning...

    cheers!

  • @Ronin: God I'd love to do TED. You have to be invited, so there's no way to predict when (if ever) I might be able to do it. They have a nomination form at http://www.ted.com/nominate/speaker, so if you're so inclined...:)
