You may transfer video files from the CD-ROMs or DVD-ROMs to a network (or workstation) hard drive for the convenience of faculty and students.
A 100 MB network is recommended, with Pentium II workstations having 128 MB RAM. Because of various network configuration issues, be sure to test the video performance after copying file from one lesson to a network drive. You may log in to menu.exe as guest.
Select the lesson you copied to test video performance.
The video files for the Basic Math course use about 18 GB; Algebra files use about 12 GB.
Creating a Path for the Video Files
The ModuMath software searches for a specific folder on drives A through Z. Because of this, you can place the video files in any location that is mapped to a drive letter, as long as the rest of the path is identical to that of the CD-ROM. Do not, however,
use a letter that is also found on workstations, such as A, C, D or E.
For the Algebra course, create a folder called mmalgvid at the root level of a lettered drive. Then copy the subfolder in mmalgvid on the CD-ROM to the root level of your lettered drive. Do not copy the algmovie folder. When you have copied all of the algxx
folders, you will have 32 subfolders under mmalgvid – one for each lesson. The folder structure should look like:
For the Basic Math course, create a folder called mvid. Copy the subfolder in mvid on the CD-ROM to the root level of your lettered drive. Do not copy the movie folder. When you have copied all of the mmx-xx folders, you will have 51 subfolders under mvid – one for each lesson.
Be sure students have the appropriate network rights to view the folder(s) you created.
