Workspace Improvement/Opportunity

I believe Treehouse has a great opportunity to jump on Workspace by doing something like this:

Love the idea!

I posted a longer reply but connection timed out. The short version was that I believe students of all levels would benefit greatly from something like this.

Being new to web design and all that's available on here can be somewhat intimidating. Having someone to work on a project with in real-time would prove invaluable. Especially being able to bounce ideas back and forth, as well as seeing how something can be improved on the fly.

exactly! The only catch I would add to that is that the Design Dude would have that part of the site locked to him e.g. Student locks in HTML and CSS, and conversely, Function Guy (Student B) in my example has JS locked. That gives both students FOCUS. In addition they can both chat, SPOT each other, and get assistance from 'The Crowd'.

There's another icon on the bottom left hand side and that's the Treehouse teacher - if one is made available.
