Instructions: This unit not only surveys the course content
and methods; it also introduces the streaming audio form of presentation
at the core of all subsequent instruction. If you haven't already installed
the free RealOne
Player you will need to do so before proceeding. Indeed, if you
haven't already run the course welcome and taken the
other "getting started" steps at the bottom of the course
home page you should also do so now. On this and all subsequent unit
"course of instruction" pages each arrow ()
links to a presentation outline. To launch an outline's streaming audio
presentation simply click on the link labelled "Begin streaming"
in the upper right hand corner.
