LiveTalk Presentations

LiveTalks are online presentations with simultaneous text-based input and questions from students. Instructors and presenters read and respond to the student input. LiveTalks are different for each offering of the course; the posted LiveTalks below are from the 2009 offering.

Each LiveTalk includes two sections: (1) lecture from a guest speaker and (2) responses to student questions submitted in advance.

Slide presentations are available as PDFs, and the corresponding audio components are available as MP3s. The text-based student input is not available on OCW.
