Select a lecture from the list below. Click on the day (left) for the Digital
Lecture, on the right is a link to the lecture notes for that day. You will
need an audio head set to listen to these movies if you are using computers
(with no speakers) on campus.
Remember you must have the latest version of QuickTime or QuickTime for Windows
installed on your computer. All CIS and Technology Fee computer laboratories
have this latest version of QuickTime.
Once the file has loaded..it may take a moment depending on traffic on the
server and/or the network the movie will begin to play. If it does not begin
to play simply click on one of the green buttons located in the left side of
the window. To jump to a particular point in the movie click on one of the buttons
on the left-side of the window. If you mouseover the button it will provide
a brief description of the clip (note this will happen as we get into later
versions). If you mouseover the lecture date it will provide a brief description
of what is covered in the lecture. I'm behind in adding the Flash interactivity.
I'm hoping to get back to that ASAP. Hang in there.
Please remember we are on the bleeding edge so expect problems. When you encounter
problems e-mail me and we'll try to get them resolved. Good luck and enjoy!
