The lessons are divided into smaller segments so you can easily find topics.  I recommend that you watch the lessons in numerical order so you can see the project from start to finish. Of course, you can always go back and watch them over as many times as you need to in order to grasp the skill being demonstrated. The time it will take to watch each video varies from lesson to lesson, and is shown in parenthesis () after each video link.

It is recommended that you let the video load completely in the browser window before you attempt to play it.  Be patient, this may take a few minutes.  It will depend on the speed of your computer and the speed of your internet connection.
