Notes on privacy and anonymity:
- There are feedback questions at the end of the course; the answers to these questions do NOT remain totally anonymous. Epigeum is working on an anonymous option. It has not been an issue so far, because the feedback questions do not have sensitive content, but you should be aware of this nonetheless. You are not required to give feedback.
