A lot of the dependency for scheduling is the instructor. Instructors have to schedule the time that works for them as well. I sympathize for those who would be taking the training at 1am in the UK. In fact, one of our regulars is in Israel, which means its 0300 for her. No matter what time you schedule, it's not going to be very convenient for someone to attend live.
That's why on-demand is there and counts for attendance. Sure you don't get the benefit of real-time interaction with the CIN community, but then, that's why this board is here as well.
So, really, there's not much overall to be gained by being live, unless you enjoy heckling @Stephen Schneiter
or want to listen to my weird jokes. (and you actually can heckle Stephen here and catch my jokes on-demand)
Hope this helps.
And good work, @Lee McWhorter
on another TTT kickoff. We're getting good at this...haha
