Videos available for exam prep/review

Videos are available, at last. Here is how to watch: Click on the "videos" link on the left. (This used to direct you to last fall's lectures.) Click student. You'll be asked to authenticate. The user name to use is "[yourandrewID]@andrew.ad.cmu.edu" along with your usual andrew password. Note the "ad" in the domain. Note also that if your authentication fails, go to myandrew and reset your password to itself. (Why this works I cannot explain.) Use the slide tray on the bottom to navigate. Videos that show powerpoint directly have a search function that you can use to find specific material -- the index is built from text on the slides. Try also the note-taking tab. Apologies for not getting these out sooner, but the video folks have had technical problems supporting us. let me know if any problems. --Bill
