CECS 311 Lecture and Tutorial Videos

Videos of lectures and/or labs are a courtesy and are not a replacement for missing classes. Processing, uploading, more processing, and posting these videos is extremely time consuming and well beyond the expectations of me as an instructor. Errors, mistakes and accidental omissions are a very real possibility. It could take over a week for videos to make it here if this is the first time I’m recording a new class. It is also highly unlikely that I will remember every detail of every video. Again, These are shared as a courtesy…
