Dear MIT

My name is Berhe Nerea. I am from Ethiopia. Currently, I am attending MSc in computational science at Addis Ababa University. I have keen interest to attend your video lecture but the wireless Internet of the University can not support video. Thus, is there any other means so as I can follow all the video lectures?

I thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Sincerely yours,
Berhe Nerea
Addis Ababa University

Hello Berhe Nerea,

I'm not associated with MIT. But I'd like to try and help in case someone has the same problem (because your probably finished with your study by now...).

The WLAN usually doesn't distinguish wether you watch a video or read text (both 1s and 0s). But maybe it blocks some domains or your webbrowser doesn't have the Adobe Flash player plugin installed.
In the latter case a download form the Internet Archive should work. Here the link to all the video lectures of this course:

In case you didn't know, this is where the videos come from:

Best regards
