Video Watching Tips

  • Videos are available on the ECE Learning Environment (help) and YouTube. You may find the former preferable and easier to watch, because its viewer (called Panopto) is more powerful and tailored to the modules.
  • If you wish to view the YouTube series, the course playlist is available here.
  • Get a very good internet connection.
  • Use a large screen.
  • Maximize the camera window (especially if the whiteboard contents are hard to discern). You can do this by making the whiteboard video full screen in Panopto. Adjust the sizes of the camera window and the slides appropriately.

Getting the Most out of Lecture

  1. Try to do the required readings before the lecture. Certainly print out all the readings beforehand and keep them with you during the lecture. Refer to them as needed.
  2. Watch the entire lecture carefully with your full attention – dedicate time for the entire lecture. Go back to points in lecture that you may not have paid attention to the first time.
  3. Take notes and write down any questions you may have during the lecture. You can ask some of these during recitation sessions.
  4. Stop the videos as needed and find the mentioned readings.
  5. Definitely do all the required readings after the lecture.
