Generally, new lessons are posted once a day for five days. Occasionally, two lessons will be posted on a given day. New lessons will include new concepts, discussion prompts, and a link to a dedicated Slack channel for the topic.
Slack notifications are set up for you to receive notifications each time a new piece of content is uploaded. It is strongly recommended that you install the Slack app on your phone and/or desktop and customize your settings as you see fit.
No problem! There is no set pace. As soon as a session is live, you can do it at your own pace. Finish when you like. We aim to make our content as engaging as possible to ensure you stay up to date, but if you’re not able to stay on track one week, this won’t be an issue. The content, discussions forums, and community engagement will all be available for up to two weeks after the last lesson is uploaded.
Slack is very user-friendly, but if you have never used it before, it may seem daunting at first. We are happy to provide dedicated technical assistance to anyone who needs it, ensuring you can get going on the important stuff. In most cases, it only takes a few minutes to get people up and running on Slack for the first time.
We do. The first two days of the workshop will include discussions, videos, and posts. Try to engage with these first two days as much as you can, watching the videos and posting your own work. Then, if by the end of the second day you still feel the workshop isn’t for you, send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive a full refund!
All video content, discussion forums, and other posts will be available for up to two weeks after the final content is uploaded. The Slack channel will be available for three weeks. Once the slack group will be closed you still will have access to the videos and other materials.
Yes, Slack will be the only approved and official channel for communication regarding the workshop. You will receive an email link inviting you to the Slack channel, but once you have joined, all communication should take place there. All discussion and notifications will take place in Slack, and you will not receive email updates.
You can participate fully with just a phone or laptop. The workshop is designed to ensure no loss of content or accessibility on any mainstream device. This is to try to address the large dropout rates in online learning.
Of course, anything you learn or come to understand through the workshop can and should be shared (e.g., concepts, understanding, learning techniques, etc.).
However, if anyone else wants to view the videos, take part in the discussions, or listen to the content on an ongoing basis, they should sign up and participate in the workshop.
Any further questions, concerns, or just topics you’d like to understand better can be addressed any time! Feel free to send us an email at email@example.com and we would be happy to answer.
