It would be beneficial to know how the live lessons are spread across the week and approximately what timing is planned. I am sure most of us have day jobs, I cannot take live courses during working hours. It's hard to plan ahead and commit to something I don't know how to schedule. Maybe you should think about separate live sessions for different major time zones and time the sessions in the evening and/or weekends.

Yes, we absolutely assume people have day jobs. We are completely flexible from our side, so we plan to schedule the live sessions for weekday evenings of the majority of selected participants, and, once a group is selected, we would run a quick survey among the group to determine the most convenient day and time. It is understood that some people would then be unable to attend at the selected time; those would have to await a future course. This is a pilot, and one of the aspects being experimented with is this scheduling of a course with live segments for a global audience.
But if you're interested in the course, do submit an application. There is no commitment or penalty if you ultimately can't make it. Asaf (WMF) (talk) 12:59, 8 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
