CET4861 Lectures Page


Lectures that are useful for the materials in this course will be posted on this page. In addition to lectures produced for this class, this page also includes lectures from other courses.


I strongly suggest you download these files to your computer, that way you can view the video on your host system and have access to it at any time (even when you are offline).  Also, run the video in your host system (Windows, whatever) and have your VM open while I work through the video. Pause the video when I run the command, duplicate the command.  Does it work? Great! You're doing it correctly.  Doesn't work? You're doing it wrong!  That's the only way to learn, by DOING!  Now have fun!
