Video Clips

The advantage of watching online video clips on technical procedures is that you can watch them over and over, or even pause them to help understand whatever is been explained.   Following are a number of video clips on various aspects of Information Technology.  With each video you can choose to watch it on full screen.  Make sure your speakers are not on mute.   This list will increase as the year progresses.   Beware - many of the following videos will commence with an ad which you will be able to skip if you see the 'Skip Ad' icon on the screen.

 

 

Notes

Throughout the year links to notes will be added from any Information Technology Sessions that are run.  So, watch this space.
