The School is delivered over six weeks through the FutureLearn platform and six one-hour live sessions. The live sessions are held on Thursday afternoons at 3pm UK time (BST).

Using Webex

We use Webex for our live sessions. You can find out more about how to use Webex.

If you miss a live session

These sessions are great to join live, as you get the opportunity to chat in real-time to other participants as it is happening. But we recognise that many participants work in environments where they aren’t able to commit to attending something at a scheduled time every week. So we’ll make all the live sessions available to watch on YouTube shortly after it has finished. We’ll add the link in FutureLearn once we have uploaded the video to YouTube.

If you can’t get Webex to work

Due to different policies, some organisations don’t allow access to Webex. For that reason, we will also stream the live sessions via YouTube Live at the same time. Unfortunately you won’t be able to participate in the chat or interactive elements if you are watching on YouTube.

Live transcription

We’ve always committed to providing a live transcription of each session, so participants with hearing loss can participant. This year we’re adding live subtitles to the YouTube Live stream, rather than having the transcription appear on a seperate page. Use the YouTube Live link above, and please do feedback if this is a preferable to having transcription appear on a seperate page.

We make a lot of use of webinar technology in Horizons. What do you like and dislike about it? Could it help improve communication in your organisation?
