In case you cannot run the software on your own computer, please see at the bottom of this document* for alternative way to access the software such as on a school computer in JSOM computer lab (you should also attend the optional class on Thurs. 13th if you are having any difficulties accessing the software in the lab after trying to do so).

If you do not complete by the due date you will lose up to 25pts, no make up! The goal is to get you familiar with this software and recall this is the first introductory assignment and thus a bit longer, please allow enough time to complete it (recall Thurs. 13th class is optional to give you extra time to complete the assignment you can even come with your laptop/headset and do it in class).
1. Listen to the short video presentation (about 15 minutes): http://ac643237f084e8ace874-bc66e7d7e94645e42eac525bb86fd1ab.r27.cf1.rackcdn.com/guide_intro.swf You need to click on the green arrow on the right bottom corner to move forward into that presentation.
