Powerpoint Slides and Lecture Material
Note on opening downloaded files: Some of the linked files are microsoft office files, ending in extensions .xlsx (Excel), .xlsm (Excel with macro's), .pptx (powerpoint). Microsoft Office uses a compressed zip format for these and sometimes browsers identify these as zip files rather than of the appropriate office type with the correct extension. If this occurs when you download these files you may see a zip file containing folders with xml files rather than the single file you are expecting. You should in these cases rename the file to have the appropriate extension (.xlsx, .xlsm or .pptx etc) or use "save target as" or "save link as" (depending on browser) to save the file with one of these extensions. Then it should open in Microsoft Office..
