The presentations listed below are provided to you in three forms: MediaSite, PDF, and PowerPoint.

MediaSite files are large and simultaneously feature both the PowerPoint slides and video of the speaker.  Microsoft Silverlight is required to view MediaSite files and is available for free download here.  Because MediaSite files are large, it is recommended that only those with high-speed internet access view them.

PDF files are smaller, so those with dial-up should select the PDF option.

PowerPoint is not required to view the PowerPoint files.  These files are smaller, so those with dial-up should select the PowerPoint option.
