Accessing Powerpoint Lecture Presentations
Lecture presentations are not available on-line.
Powerpoint presentations from lecture are provided as .ppt files.
These .ppt files can be accessed via the W: drive
(cass1\deptdir\geog\running\178.001\NewLectures). The newest, updated
versions are only available AFTER they have been fully presented in
class (However, older versions may be available before class-and often
they're pretty close).
To get to that subdirectory using a PC (if you're using a MAC, see CNS help
desk at 36-5711) simply…
- Right click on the My Computer icon
after you've logged in as normal.
- Select, Map a network drive.
In the dialog box labeled "drive" select a
letter you currently are not using (W or T are
considered standard). In the dialog box labeled "path"
highlight and select (if present) or type in
Now, Go to START (lower left corner of the screen), select
Programs, highlight WINDOWS EXPLORER
Scroll down and locate the W: drive (or whatever letter you
designated it), highlight it, and work your way down the
subdirectory chain to locate the folder
Double click on the "NewLectures" folder
Double click on the .ppt file appropriate to your study
These files are big so don't save them to your H:drive. Just view
them from the W: drive. If for some reason you deem it appropriate to
print them out, conserve ink, paper, and power. Choose print setup
options that allow 6-9 slides per page, and pure black and white.
If you have no idea what any of the instructions on this page means, call
the CNS Help Desk at 36-5711, or stop by OL 1108 and ask a BITS worker to
assist you. Both resources are more than capable of getting you up to
