Spatial Course Mini-Lecture Resources
Schools typically have an instructor introduce each module topic at the start of each class. You can choose to use the free mini-lecture slides or purchase a license for 10 mini-lecture videos and 24 complementary sketching videos that show students how to draw rotated objects for each module. The videos can be embedded in your Learning Management System so students can watch them as they work on their sketching exercises.

Before the mini-lecture videos, there were free downloadable mini-lecture slides for each course module. Feel free to use the following presentation slides as mini-lessons in your classroom. These are PPTX files which can be opened using Microsoft PowerPoint.
All slide decks were updated April, 2016.
