Re-inventing the way we communicate at the dawn of the COVID-19 crisis was the only way for continuing education programmes at the University of Geneva to keep some visibility during the peak of the recruitment period (March-May). It was also the only way to live up to a key dimension of our quality assurance system, namely informing future candidates and participants in a timely and accurate way of our course offering while answering their questions. When all the professionals around the world started working from home, and our teaching staff and programme managers got locked down, the need to reach out to our audience became crucial. At the end of February, public events started to be cancelled at the University of Geneva. We, at the Centre for Continuing and Distance Education, took the decision to transform our physical Open Doors scheduled on 31 March into a virtual event. We had three weeks. A real challenge: 350 programmes were counting on this event to recruit for the coming academic year and future candidates and participants, as well as HR and L&D officers, were counting on the event to finalize training decisions.
