I have not found any way to listen to the videos faster on a phone (I have an iPhone). I know I am able to speed up podcasts on my phone, but I haven't found any links to podcast the videos instead of using the app. I havent looked that hard though.

You can transfer the files to your computer and use your computers media player. I did it with my android/windows based devices, but I have read that you can do it on iOS. I think you have to download the videos through itunes on your laptop and then open the files in your media player from there for iOS devices.

In Firefox, get VideoDownloadHelper, download the videos to your hard drive. There's probably an analogous program for Chrome, but I don't know it offhand.

Then, get VLC on your iPad. Sync iPad with computer, add the videos to the VLC app through iTunes.

I did this because I was planning on listening to lectures while I was out doing errands, for review or something. Lol, just lol, at my optimism regarding my own diligence.

Awesome, I figured that they had kindle versions of all the outlines, so they probably have some way to download it. But I never needed it enough to find the answer. Thanks!

Did Themis just change up the appearance of the website (particularly the font they use) or is my computer just bugging out?

I noticed that too. I thought it was just my browser, but looks like they made the change.

Yep. The font looks a lot more clear now. I won't have to squint at my computer screen anymore.

Same here. Now if only they would change the color of letters from dark grey to black... I usually don't mind the color, but after staring at the screen for hours it starts hurting my eyes.

My laptop gets approximately 20 minutes of battery life so that wouldn't be particularly helpful for a flight unfortunately. Really need an iOS speedup. Anyone know a way?

I like the bigger font, but can we also get a bigger box for essay writing? TYIA Themis.

Anyone who hasn't gotten to the Advanced Sales lectures: they are 95% the same as the contracts lectures, right down to the same examples, so imminently skippable. Just go through the handout with the contracts handout and you can fill in the 3 new concepts from the long outline.

finally got an answer to my pretty basic substantive question, a week after asking. harrumph. not a big deal, i guess, but i hope to see faster responses as we get down the wire. something tells me that's not gonna happen, though.

He bounces around a bit. This is the first time that I understood the long outline better than the lecturer.

Hate to be the one to tell you this, but it gets worse. Even though he never quite goes past 28, I don't think, it feels like he's going for 50 mins...

I watched them pretty comfortably at 2x


I watch them at 2x speed as well. Now if I hear them at the normal speed, it sounds so weird and comical.


I will definitely be speeding them up, definitely just so I don't have to hear "DefenDONT".

Maybe you have a different page because we're in different states. I can drag the box out by pulling on the bottom right corner of my essay box.
