I think it'd be simpler if the tutorial was a kind of talk but of a
longer duration and only on a specific day. At the very least, the UI
would be simpler.

I don't think so. I'm sure things trends will emerge automatically.

I think we should a single length for talks. Say 40 minutes. IT's
annoying when people request a 45 minute slot to be "safe" and then have
just 30 minutes of content to deliver. Pack it in that much time. Keep
it short and to the point.
Tutorial are different. I'm not sure if it's been discussed here but
usually, they're 3 hour things with a day devoted to them. Students pay
for them separately and receive printed notes etc. Is that the way we're
planning to go?
