FAQs for Attendees


 

COURSE MATERIALS:

 

Q:  I KNOW THIS IS A 'PAPERLESS' COURSE, BUT WILL YOU PROVIDE ANY FORM OF THE MATERIALS AT THE COURSE?

  •  A:  No.  All handout materials will be available in PDF form on the course website which you can access from your electronic device.  Many speakers update their presentations when they arrive at the course.  We will update all presentations as quickly as possible to the website.  

 

Q:  HOW WILL I KNOW IF A PRESENTATION IS UPDATED?

  • A:  The filename will have "Updated 9.XX.2017' at the end of it showing the date it was updated.

 

Q:  WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCESS COURSE MATERIALS FROM THE WEBSITE BEFORE THE COURSE?

  • A:  Yes.  It is our goal to have as many of the handouts as possible available to you prior to the course.  We are going to give attendees access to materials on/about September 1st.  We will have all materials available that we have received from the speakers!  We will continue to upload the missing handouts, as they are received! 

 

Q:  HOW LONG WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE MATERIALS?

Q:   HOW DO I ACCESS COURSE MATERIALS FROM THE WEBSITE?

  • A:  You will receive an email from us on/about September 1st with complete instructions as to how to access the materials.  When you register, you receive a 'registration confirmation number' from the website and your confirmation email.  You will use the same email you used for registration as your login email.  ​Your registration 'confirmation number' will be your initial password.  You will have the option to change your password after your initial login.  ​Once you are logged in, you will have access to all course materials!  Only registered participants have access to materials, which are login and password protected.

CHANGING MY WORKSHOP CHOICE:

 

Q:  WHAT IF I DECIDE I WANT TO CHANGE MY WORKSHOPS?

  • A:  The easiest way to change your workshop choice is to do so BEFORE THE COURSE on the 'Registration' Page...after entering your email address and password, click on 'Continue' button and then click on View Or Change Your Existing Registration.  From there, you can go in and change your workshop choice.  The sooner you make your decision to make a change, the better, as once a workshop has filled to capacity, you will no longer be able to access that workshop.

 

Q:  WHAT IF I DECIDE I WANT TO CHANGE MY WORKSHOPS AT THE COURSE?

  • A:  We will do everything we can to let you change your workshop choice on site at the registration desk.  As long as the workshop still has space available, we will make the change.  If the workshop is full to capacity, we cannot make the change because of strict fire code rules enforced by Baruch College.
