A Note on Viewing Video:
The course videos are provided in two versions. A "broadband" version for individuals who are connected to the Internet via a fast connection (e.g., a Cable Modem, DSL, ISDN, T1, T3, etc.) and a "modem" version for those with a slower connection. For consistency both versions are also available on the course CD-ROM. In the case of viewing the video from the CD-ROM most will want to choose the "broadband" version.
