Frequently Asked Questions
Why aren’t the Master Class webinars free of cost for members?While the Master Class webinars aren’t free, they are open to both members and non-members of Interaction Design Foundation. While non-members pay $30 per webinar, members pay only $3. We charge this nominal fee to cover a few costs associated with producing the webinars, including:
- The cost of using Zoom as our webinar partner. Zoom is one of the most reliable webinar hosting platforms, but it’s also one of the most expensive. We chose quality over affordability to bring you a better viewing experience, and the nominal fee we charge helps us cover these costs, without making the webinars expensive.
- Along with the cost of Zoom, we also cover webinar costs associated with servers, payment gateways and code maintenance. In fact, 40 cents off every dollar in a transaction goes towards just the payment gateway alone!
Charging this small fee goes a long way in helping us cover these costs and enables us to continue to bring you high-quality content with the best experts.

I missed registering for some of the Master Class webinars hosted in previous months.

I’m a member, but I cannot see all the Master Classes I purchased on my profile. How can I find the ones that are missing?Many of the past Master Classes have been edited and uploaded to our platform so that our members can view them conveniently in one place.
After each Master Class broadcast, our video editors painstakingly edit, improve and enhance the quality of these recordings to give you a better experience—but this process takes time, and that’s why there’s sometimes a delay in making them available within your profile.
Until recent Master Class recordings appear in your profile, you can always playback any of the Master Classes you’ve purchased using the Zoom recording links you received after the broadcast. Can’t find these recording links? Then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
