About the 80th Scientific Sessions On Demand

The American Diabetes Association®(ADA) has partnered with Wolters Kluwer to produce and offer the 80th Scientific Sessions On Demand product. The 80th Scientific Sessions On Demand is an online library with key sessions from the 80th Scientific Sessions Virtual Experience that you can watch anytime, anywhere. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn and access the latest and groundbreaking science in diabetes.

How to Access Content

To access On Demand, you will need the access code that was sent to you from If you purchased before the meeting, your access code will be sent during the meeting. If you purchased after that, your access code was sent immediately after purchase.

If you do not receive your receipt by email with the access code, please check your junk mail. If you need your access code resent, please contact [email protected] and provide the email address that was used to purchase On Demand.

How do I play a session?

Content must be played at the presentation level. On the homepage, you can browse content by the meeting schedule, session, presentation or presenter. You must continue making selections until you are at the presentation level. When you see a presentation of interest, click on the View Now button. You can also search for specific content by using the search tab.

What is the difference between Basic Search and Search Content of Slides?

Basic Search searches session titles, presentation titles, and speaker names and will display the results from any of those three categories containing your search term. If you select a session from the results list, it will display all the presentations in that session (even though your search term may not be in every presentation title).

Search Content of Slides searches every word on every slide in every presentation. The results are ordered by the number of times your search term shows up in the presentation. In addition, the search results display the time stamp when your search term appears in the presentation. You can go directly to that point of the presentation by clicking on the time stamp. You must be online to use the search content of slides.

Are there thumbnail/preview slides?

Yes, to view the thumbnails, you must be watching a presentation in full-screen mode. To get to full-screen mode, place your mouse over the video window while you are playing a presentation and a control panel will appear. Select the icon with box and arrow in the top right corner. The presentation will go into full-screen mode and thumbnails will appear on the bottom of the screen.

Will the player remember where I left off in a presentation?

Yes, if you have begun watching a presentation, the player will automatically start at the place you stopped regardless of what device you are on. In other words, if you start watching a presentation on your work computer, you can immediately start playing at the place you stopped watching on your tablet or phone. To see a list of presentations that you have recently watched, Browse by Recently Viewed.

I can’t hear the presentation. How do I fix that?

You may have up to three places that control the volume. Within the video window (place your mouse over the video window and there is a volume control on the bottom right), on your computer and on your speakers if you have external speakers.

How do I download presentations?

Neither the presentation slides nor the videos can be downloaded. Presenters typically prefer to not have their presentations be downloadable. You can, however, download MP3s of the audio only when you are logged into the online version.

Do I have to be online to watch presentations?

Your purchase includes a drive that will be automatically sent to you. The portable drive contains the same presentations as the online version, but you do not have to be online to watch the presentations on the portable drive. If you do not have Silverlight or an HTML5 compatible operating system/browser, you may need to be online the first time you use the portable drive to download Silverlight at Microsoft Silverlight.

Please note: While the same presentations are available on the drive, certain functionality is not available on the drive including Search Content of Slides, Bookmarks, Testing, Most Watched and Most Liked. To access these features you must use the online version of your player.

How do I watch presentations on my mobile device?

On Demand is automatically formatted to play on most mobile devices. Simply log-in on your mobile device. We cannot guarantee compatibility with every mobile device as operating system requirements are constantly changing.

You must be online to stream sessions on your mobile device. Sessions cannot be downloaded to your mobile device. Most sessions should work over 3G/4G in addition to Wi-Fi, however, the quality will depend on the bandwidth available at any given location and time.

Please note: Testing is not available on your mobile device.

How long will I have online access?

Sessions will be available online for two years from the date of the meeting. You can access sessions on your drive indefinitely, but not all features are available on the drive, including Search Content of Slides, Testing, Bookmarks, Most Watched and Most Liked.

I can’t find the session I want to watch, but it was listed as part of the product. How do I find it?

We can only publish presentations with speaker permission, which can change at any time. We do our best to keep the content list up-to-date; however printed materials may not reflect the most accurate content listing if a speaker has requested that their presentation not be published after the content list was printed.

I still need help. Who do I contact?

You can contact [email protected] or call us at 818-844-3299 (Toll Free 800-501-2303). Support Hours of Operation are 6:00 AM – 5:00 PM PT.

To obtain Continuing Education credit

Certificates of continuing education are available to health care professionals who participate in this continuing education activity, based upon completion of an online activity evaluation. The link to the online evaluation will be emailed to those who purchase the OnDemand product. The continuing education evaluation system will be open through June 26, 2022. After this date, continuing education credits will not be available. For questions please contact [email protected]
