MIT 6.00 Introduction to Computer Science and Programming - Fall 2008

This subject is aimed at students with little or no programming experience. It aims to provide students with an understanding of the role computation can play in solving problems. It also aims to help students, regardless of their major, to feel justifiably confident of their ability to write small programs that allow them to accomplish useful goals. The class will use the Python™ programming language.

I am satisfied by the entire course lecture. Wow it’s so nice but I have faced some difficulties when I tried 2 download the video lecture it downloads only the video with out the English subtitles in the video can any one help me to download the video lecture with its subtitle. Thank you in advance for your help

Comment23 Leo, April 11, 2012 at 5:29 a.m.:

all right folks, here are some tips about downloading the videos and subs. 1) you can go http://ocw.mit.edu/courses/electrical..., and click the link then you'll see the video window, there are some buttons behind it, if your brain serves you well you'll find the "Download this Video opinion". in some cases you can directly go iTunes U and search the relevant videos, or go to Youtube MIT channel you sure will find them as well sorry i cant upload some pics there.

well, there are several ways to get them, how can i put that? well, here i introduce the easiest one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dMHt6s..., watch this video then you'll figure it out. of course you can use Google Chrome inspect element to find the sub and convert it to SRT file but that could be kinda tough.

that's it, hoping it could be helpful.

I find the video lectures very helpful on my learning, and understand those videos are old. I'd like to get access to all code that Pr. Grimson and Guttag used for teaching. My question is, how I can get them?

Thank you,
