An audioconference is an interactive broadcast that is 90 minutes in length: typically one hour and fifteen minutes for presentations and fifteen minutes for the question and answer session (Q&A). Each program has a moderator who will introduce the instructors and expedite the Q&A. A program may have as few as one or as many as four instructors. The specific length of each presentation will be decided among the instructors and moderator. However, the overall length of the audioconference should not exceed 90 minutes.
