MAS6011/MAS465 Multivariate Data Analysis Podcasts, Vodcasts and Rich Media Links

This page provides links to various forms of recordings of the lectures and other sessions for Multivariate Data Analysis.
The recordings were made in Autumn 2011 (with answers to The Quiz added in 2012).
Return to main Multivariate Analysis page.

Podcasts are simple sound recordings of the lectures. Vodcasts are sound recordings plus a synchronised recording of the desktop, which will display the PowerPoint slides and any other winodws that are opened (including R sessions and web pages). Rich Media (or Echo) provides the most flexible facility of sound, desktop and video with facilities for speed of playback and options for switching the video on or off.

Links are provided to individual lectures etc with a brief summary of content. The RSS feeds below the table provide links to a page with all the webcasts to date with the option of subscribing to the RSS feed so that new recordings are downloaded to your computer automatically.
