I have been looking at it on my PC for a while now and it is excellent in both content and production, thank you for this great resource.

I also have it running on my Ipad from your web link above, I had to download Puffin web browser and run it in that but it does work.

I am a linux user, and I have been able to watch the first two chapters of this on my PC without any trouble whatsoever. I have to say, this is very good and can only second John's opinion. Highly recommended.

Bought the DVD for school use, really helpful tool. Not only is it a guide to good teaching practice but also a useful reminder for ourselves on how to turn safely using good technique . I love the way it is broken down into small learning chunks.
       Thank you for making this- much needed.

I've used the link but how do I save to the hard drive?

A club member has bought the DVD but can't get it to open. He's using vista.  Any ideas? I've given him the link so he can now view it.

Tony,
It is not a DVD and won't play in a DVD player. It's a CD for installing on a PC. Put the CD in the PC and run the setup program.

If you used the download link, your web browser should give you the choice of saving the file or running it.

Paul
I've always understood that a CD produces sound and a DVD adds vision. So what is it?

As you know Vista is an MS OS. His actual device is a Laptop not a DVD player.

As regards the download I use google chrome. It downloaded fast but didn't go through the usual save/run.

Please make allowances for us nonagenarians !!

Tony,
A CD is also a form of file storage for computers. In this form, it just contains computer files.

Thanks for that Paul. I should have thought about that, as I've used them for backing up.
