Flash videos to get started with Simile

Here are 4 flash videos which demonstrate how to create a simple model (createModel.swf), add in quantitative information to the model's components (quantitativeModel.swf), delete unwanted model components (deleteComponents.swf) and run the model (runningModel.swf). The model I use is the first example model in the book by Grant and Swannack, "Ecological modelling: a common-sense approach to theory and practice" John Wiley & Sons, 2008 My undergraduate and masters students find these types of videos very helpful when learning how to use Simile. The use of text balloons, rather than an audio track, allows you to scroll through the video easily, and it doesn't create noise during a large class. Any suggestions on these kinds of videos would be very welcome. Jon
