If you would like to follow along with some of the specific exercises in this course, you can download and place a copy of the exercise files on your desktop. All the files for this course are grouped together into this single folder, and you'll see captions appear at the bottom of movies, letting you know which file I'm using at any particular time. Just open the file in whichever application I'm using at that time, in the movie you're watching, and you should have no trouble following along with the steps I am performing. But following along with me is not required. If you prefer, just sit back and watch what I'm doing in each movie, and then you can try out what you've learned for yourself using your own files later.
