So, what's the catch?
There isn’t really a catch, but there are a few things to understand. In order to deliver what we believe is awesomely good value (and trust us, $25 is amazing value), we’re taking a pretty basic recording approach.
The video will consist of high definition screen capture of the presenter display, featuring Radiopaedia’s fullscreen quiz mode with scrollable stacks and zoom functionality. There’ll be no video of the presenters themselves. No GoPro moments. No selfie sticks. Just simple high definition screen capture.
We think we’ll be able to capture audio really well, but it is unlikely to be professional quality. The resulting live recording will not be edited, we’ll simply be dividing it into seven videos corresponding to each section of the course and uploading them to our site.
The course is presented in English by Australians. We suggest you make sure you can clearly understand Andrew and Frank in their Radiology Channel videos before buying access to this video course. If you can understand most things they’re saying then "she’ll be right mate”.
You’ll be able to watch the videos as many times as you like after they are uploaded to our website. We can only guarantee access for three months, but in truth you’ll probably have access for longer assuming we keep paying for video hosting. Either way, we’ll contact you to warn you if your video access is ever going to be removed.
How can you help?
The main way you can help is by registering for video access and telling your friends and colleagues to do the same. In order for us to be able to keep prices low, to give free access to people in developing countries and to record more video events in the future, there needs to be high demand.
And finally, if you don't live too far from Melbourne then please consider registering to attend the May 16 course in person. Not only will it be an awesome day, but video access is included and you really will be playing an important role in making this whole thing possible.
