Some of we "old folks" took many of those courses in the 1960's, while the rest of our classmates were more closely participating in "the love generation" and "getting high with a little help from (our) friends!"

And some of us are even close enough to "brick and mortor facilities" to actually get out from behind our monitors and physically (gasp) attend such learning experience "in person." Ah, those were the days, actually going to class and conversing with people (gasp) face to face.

It's a real shame the webcasts use Realplayer (a piece of software I avoid on moral principle), but that's an excellent find Yates, thanks!

Edited to add: not to put people off, there are mp3 versions but without the video, obviously...

That is sad, what ever happened with human interaction. What is next dating thru the computer??, WAIT that is already here!

Check out Real Alternative:


Realplayer is a steaming pile of crap, but thankfully it's possible to view (almost all) Realmedia files using just the codec by itself and the media player of your choice.

Thanks TBone, I'd not heard of that before. Very useful!

Here's another RealPlayer "alternative": http://www.realnetworks.com/products/rpe/index.html
It's for free and for enterprise use, which means it doesn't come with all the crap that the regular RealPlayer comes with. Plus, since it's made by RealNetworks, you know it'll support all formats and protocols that the full-blown RealPlayer supports.
