Some useful (and fun!) videos to both teach and entertain the course participants. Whilst the videos can be enjoyable, do try to relate them to some aspects of the course, rather than just use them for the sake of having some videos!

Please note some are fairly large (~10MB), so depending on your connection speed may take a while to download.
