Videos on Media Computation Tips and Techniques
To use Media Computation you will need a Java JDK (SE 1.5 or above) and the bookClasses. We also recommed that you use DrJava and also download mediasources, and the Media Tools. The bookClasses are the classes that we wrote to allow you to do Media Computation. See the Getting Started
