I submitted a question and it was not answered during the livestream, why?
You are not guaranteed to receive an answer to your question. Due to a very large amount of questions and limited time during the livestream, it is not possible for every question to be answered. We ensure that as many questions as possible are answered during the stream and that the most frequently asked topics are addressed.
Questions that are not answered during the stream will be used to inspire future program topics.
What if I can't attend the livestream due to work or time difference?
A recording of the full livestream along with the individual presentations will be uploaded to our website soon after the stream has ended. These videos and slides will remain archived on our website where you can view them on demand.
How can I ensure to view the online course with the best possible quality?
As the program is livestreamed, a stable internet connection is the best way to ensure you can view the stream at the highest quality. Please note, the video quality of livestreams is dependent on your internet connection. A good headset is also recommended to secure the best audio quality possible. Since the quality of computer audio depends on your internet connection, we suggest that you close any other applications that update frequently using the internet to avoid any interruptions.
If my question is not answered in the FAQs, who do I contact regarding the COVID-19 Online Educational Program?

Alternatively, you can request that your question is put to the speakers for the next edition of the program. Please note, this is no guarantee that your question will be answered. Only that we will add it to our pool of questions available for the speaker to potentially answer.
