- The videos for Course v4 are not yet available however you can watch the Course-v3 videos. This will be enough to get you caught up.
- People are expected to complete the material in their own time/pace before the event to be able to fully participate.
- We will space the online events 2-3 weeks apart to give people sufficient time to complete the assignments. It is likely that we will remain online until it is safe for everyone to re-emerge!
