Hints for viewing the lectures in streaming video:
Click on "View in separate player" when you get to the web page to start up the video. This opens a new RealOne Player window outside your browser.
Choose "Double size" or "Full screen" viewing options. Try "ctrl+2" and "ctrl+3" if you can't find the "view" menu. The camera sharpness is usually OK, but you need this extra magnification to be able to read the blackboard.
