  1. I'd like to suggest that someone who has admin access to the open edX youtube channel add the timestamp links for each of the presentations to the descriptions of the relevant videos or a link back to this page to help people who find the videos on YouTube. Also putting the titles of the talks may help people searching on YouTube for the topics covered find the videos.

    1. Joseph Mulloy Good idea. I'll put it on our to-do list.

    2. The video team is in the process of cutting the videos into individual presentations, as they become available, we'll link directly to those.
