Through the Summer2007-Spring 2008 sessions I will be recording an audio-only version of the lectures for our course. I will be making these lectures availablve as "podcasts". These podcasts are intended to supplement our classtime, but can't substitute for them. While the podcasts can help to review material covered in class, the graphics and in-class demonstrations will not be present.
Though most people use an iPod to listen to podcasts, podcasts can be played on any device that can handle MP3 files. I would recommend downloading iTunes software to download the podcasts, and you can use this program to play the lectures on your computer as well.
The easiest way to get the podcasts is to subscribe to iTunes. If you already have iTunes you may want to first update iTunes. Once you have completed the download, you can click on the link below:
Clicking the button above will launch your iTunes and take you to the iTunes store and the Earth and Environmental Systems podcast page. Subscribing is free and is accomplished by simply clicking on the button. From this page you can also download individual lectures, write reviews, and read other's reviews. However, if you try to download a single lecture from the list by double clicking on it in this window you will only get a brief clip. You need to click the "Get episode" button.
You can also get directly to the MP3 files by going to http://www.mines.edu/academic/geology/courses/sygn101/podcast/ and clicking on the disired lecture.
