Office Mixes for Learning C#

Over the last few months I have recorded a few Office Mixes for use in my C# class. I’ve also built up a nice collection of PowerPoint presentations which I have used and updated as I have presented to various sections of my Honors Programming class. I had intended to record mixes for the complete set of PowerPoints (about 15 in all) this past week but alas circumstances conspired to make that hard to do. It will probably have to wait until summer now unless I can sneak in some time to do them one by one.

I decided today to at least see what I had done so far and to see if there were other Mixes on C# that I could share and use. I found a couple – fewer than I expected. But here is the list so far. I intend to update it as a) I make more Mixes and b) I find more by other people.

Let me know if you use any of these and if you find them helpful or if you find errors in them. Thanks.
