Lecture Audios: To Download
Audios can be listened to directly online, however it is recommended that the student downloads the audio to their computer, and listens to it offline.
There are a number of reasons for this:
- You may want to keep the audio file
- You may want to listen to it on another device, eg. MP3 player, iPod, tablet, iPhone, etc.
- You can rewind or fast forward more readily
- You can stop the audio part way through and return to later
- Other members in the home may want to use the computer, and internet while you want to listen to the lecture
- The audio begins playing but finishes too early, or it doesn't play at all
- Sound is inaudible if listening to online. However, in this case, please first check that your computer speakers are at the correct level.
To download the audio:
- Click on the Lecture Audio resource link to open it
- Right mouse click on the Lecture Audio link, eg. on TM2117_03.mp3 as shown below (not the little audio player). DO NOT do a right click on the audio link itself on the main subject page, to download, as this won't work. Do a left mouse click on it to open first.
- Select Save Link As... / Save Target As... (depending on your browser):
- Select which folder the audio file is to be saved, and click Save.
Your audio file will begin downloading. Depending on your internet connection, this may take sometime.
Important: if the audio still does not play, or finishes too early, or sound is inaudible, even after downloading it, please send a Helpdesk ticket, with the details: name of subject, week of audio, and what is happening (or not happening).
If you do want to listen to the lecture online (ie. by clicking the little play arrow along the black bar when you have opened the lecture link), or you have trouble with your internet connection while downloading the audio file. you may find the Download manager program helpful. Download this program free here.
