This is a Research Ethics lecture, also as MS Powerpoint, just given by Dr. Stefans because they couldn't find anyone else in town that week. (St. Valentine's Day, 2012)

Notes: Some of these shows are MS Powerpoint, and some are Corel Presentations. The Powerpoints will open in a new window, just maximize it and then close it with the "X" in the upper right hand corner when you are done. The Corel shows require you download (save to disk) these two files first, POOLE70.DLL , and show70.exe. Then download the actual show files (.shw) to the same directory. It can be your My Documents directory, your Desktop, or any other directory you like. (If you put all the Corel files in that same directory, you won't have to get the two "runtime" files ever again.) Click the Open Folder button or navigate to that folder, then double click show.exe (the one with the cute little projector icon) and then you can choose which presentation you want to view; click OK to run if needed, and ignore or cancel it if it asks you to put a disc in drive E: or anything else that seems strange. Dr. Stefans will provide technical support and explanation of why the Corel product is far superior to the Microsoft one upon request.
