Inf1-DA lectures are recorded and videos made available online.

Please note that these recordings supplement lectures by allowing you to review the material presented and later revise for the course exam. They are not intended as a substitute for attending the lectures themselves.


Some of the videos include footage of the lecture theatre. This is automated, and directed towards the lecturer and the slides. However, some parts of the audience may also appear. If you do not wish to be included then I recommend you sit towards the back or side of the lecture hall.


These should stream directly in your browser; or you can save them to view offline.
