Online Seminar FAQs


How long will the course materials be available to me after the end date?
You will be able to access all course materials for two weeks following the end of the seminar. After two weeks, video access will end and can’t be extended. No exceptions. However, participants are able to save a PDF copy of all the slides that can be reviewed later at any time.

Do I have to be online at specific times?
No! The courses, including all videos, are available 24 hours a day during the duration of the seminar.

Are the courses self-paced?
Yes, the courses are self-paced. However, there are suggested activities to complete each week. 

What time does the seminar begin on the first day?
The course contents will be available at roughly midnight (New York time) on the day it’s scheduled to begin.

I’ve registered; how will I access the course? When will I receive more information?
On the day the course begins, login to your DigitalChalk account (which you created when registering) to begin the seminar. An email will be sent to all participants a couple of days before the seminar begins. If you don’t receive details by the first day, check your spam folder.

Is a Certificate of Completion available?
You will be able to download a Certificate of Completion directly from the course once you’ve completed all elements. Please make sure to save the certificate for your records.



What is the schedule for remote seminars?
Our remote seminars currently follow the schedule below each day of the course:

11:00am-2:00pm EDT: Live lecture via Zoom
After 2:00pm EDT: Exercise assignment to be completed on one’s own
4:00pm-5:00pm EDT: Live lab session via Zoom to review exercises and ask questions (Tuesday and Thursday only)

On the first day of the seminar, please join the Zoom session 15 minutes early in order to make sure your audio and video are working properly and to be admitted to the meeting.

I’ve registered; when will I receive more information about the seminar?
Roughly one week before the seminar begins, you will receive an email with any necessary course materials and instructions on joining via Zoom. Please add the domain to your safe senders list to make sure you receive all emails. If you don’t receive an email by the day prior to the course, please check your spam folder.

I’ve never used Zoom before. What do I need to know?
Zoom is a very easy to use meeting software. Instructions for joining a Zoom session are available here. You will receive a meeting link from Statistical Horizons prior to the beginning of the course, all you need to do is click to join. If you do not already have Zoom downloaded on your laptop or computer, you will be prompted to do so then. It only takes a few minutes to download. You’ll then enter a virtual waiting room, where you will be admitted to the course.

I can’t attend one of the lectures. When will I be able to access a video recording?
We will send videos of each session within 24 hours.

How long will the recordings of each session be available?
You can watch the videos of the session for four weeks following the course. We are not able to grant any extensions beyond this.
