John Paul Cook

[OT] Project Tuva

While researching an upcoming blog post on using SQL Server 2012 FileTable, I stumbled across Project Tuva. Bill Gates bought the rights to some of Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman’s physics lectures and made them available for free at http://research.microsoft.com/apps/tools/tuva/.

Speaking of recorded lectures, I highly recommend that students listen to podcasts of lectures during their commutes. The main reason I made it through pharmacology and obstetrics was because I listened to the podcasts of my lectures several times during my normal commuting. The repetition really reinforced the topics. From repetition came familiarity with the material and from the familiarity came understanding.
