Inaugural World Access to Higher Education Day is 28 November

The inaugural World Access to Higher Education Day is 28 November. As part of this, University of Southern Queensland is webcasting a series of speakers. USQ have invited questions via the hashtag #WAHED2018. But that is still hours of mostly talking heads, which is not the university experience I want. I got far more than that, with far less video, as a USQ student.
