Lecture Videos and Slides

The following table combines material from the Spring 2011 offering (course number HST.184) and Spring 2012 offering (course number HST.S14), sequenced in a way the instructors feel makes sense for OCW users. The 2011 class emphasized lectures by guest speakers, whereas the 2012 class focused on case studies and mentored projects. The lecture videos are all from Spring 2011.
