Hints for viewing the lectures in streaming video:

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
