Lecture Notes: Lecture notes are handout versions of the presentation slides with Get Acrobat Reader space for annotations. All lecture notes are in PDF. To view PDF files please use the free Acrobat Reader, available for download from the Adobe web site. Access to lecture notes for my course is restricted to students enrolled in this course. If you prefer using an iPad to read lecture notes, I recommend that you use GoodReader for iPad because this application allows you to annotate PDF files. Unfortunately, GoodReader is not free; it costs $4.99. To access the lecture notes, please click on the Log In button in the menu above.
Video Files: In addition to lecture notes, the course management system also provides access to video files for the team project presentations. Video files are published in MP4 format. If your default Windows media player does not play MP4 video files, pelase download the free VLC media player. Mac users should use QuickTime.
