Presentation materials are posted just before each class session. The files are 4 to 20 MB and can take some time to load.
The PowerPoint versions of the presentations can be viewed with Microsoft PowerPoint Viewer 2007, or PowerPoint 2003, or PowerPoint 2007. An advantage of using PowerPoint is that the animations and progressive reveals on each slide can be seen, just as in class. To download a copy of PowerPoint Viewer click here.
The PDF versions can be viewed with Adobe Reader. The reference links in the fine print at the bottom can then be followed by clicking on them. To download a copy of Adobe Reader click here.
To see the slides and listen to the recorded audio at the same time, open two browser windows or tabs; start the audio first then go to the presentation and click it forward manually. This works fine with Windows XP, Windows Internet Explorer, and Windows Media Player. With combinations of Windows Vista, Mozilla Firefox, Realplayer, Apple Quicktime, or Apple Macintosh, you may have to experiment.
Class members who are unable to attend in person can listen to live audio via my Skype communications account. To listen to the audio by telephone, call 603 678 4535. You will hear what is happening in the classroom. You may also speak to the class (sparingly, please). You will pay any telephone toll charges to Lebanon NH. To listen to the audio from your PC (or Mac or other internet device) you must first install Skype and set up a free account. Visit www.skype.com and download and install the software. Set up an account and learn use Skype. Most PCs have speakers but not microphones, so you will be able to listen to the class but not speak. Call from your Skype program to "robert.hargraves". Please connect 5-10 minutes before class begins.
