Online Greek Civilization Course

PLEASE NOTE: Let me know if you encounter problems with any of these files. admin at seaquist dot us Thanks.

I am making the following lectures open to the public. If you use them for any purpose beyond your own edification, please do attribute them to me. Note that these lectures were designed in units, and only some units are offered for public consumption: I haven't posted lectures that use copyrighted material (usually graphics) which I may use in my own courses under Fair Use rules, but which I do not have the right to distribute.

Each lecture is (or will be) offered in several different formats: a version with both audio and video (to see this you will need a Flash viewer installed on your computer -- 98% of computers have these, though iPads don't), a text version in pdf (for which you will need an Adobe Acrobat reader), and an audio-only version in MP3 format. Audio may take a minute to load, and could open in Windows Media Player or Quick Time, depending on how your computer is configured.

Flash presentations were produced with Adobe Presenter. Audio was recorded with Adobe Soundbooth.
