I think alot of folks out there are familiar with Will Hookers 2003 permaculture course floating around out there. I was curious and wanted to see if he still taught there.
It turns out he still does.... and there is an updated course that you can stream from NC State!!! Here it is.... Will is losing his hair but he's still Will Awesome stuff.....

This is awesome. I listened to his intro and part of another class for about an hour and was impressed. He seems to know his stuff. Since this format is just lecture and slide show it doesn't replace a full PDC, but it looks like it will provide an indepth in-depth first pass at the material. A live class later won't be as intimidating.

Thanks for posting
Larry.

Can't see it but is there a link for downloading for offline viewing?

It can be done!

Downloaded every available class of his on iTunes before leaving the US (and the unlimited high speed internet). This is a fantastic course, Will Hooker states in one of the early classes that this is not a PDC, the value is sitting in on a class with an extremely knowledgeable Professor who knows a lot of people who are active in Permaculture and lives a lifestyle that backs up what he teaches. I'm watching episodes evenings on my laptop while I'm in South Africa in between reading stacks of books on my Kindle. I've got several books that he recommends in his classes, every one of them has been a great recommendation. As suggested in a post above, I second that this course should help one approach a PDC.

Thanks for all your great work Prof Hooker!

Unless I am mistaken, I think the most recent lectures (2012?) are here: http://mediasite.online.ncsu.edu/online/Catalog/Full/1ec0688b568a4a47a8ca8926e7b4ef1b21/?state=eDgqErbb5c4UmUn6OIX6 - I am about half way - they are slow at times, but worth sticking with as there is a lot of wisdom shared..
