As technology and my own grasp of its powers improve, I have also started putting more of my material into webcasts. All of the listed webcasts are mine, though a couple are hosted by outside servers. You should not need a password or userid for the class or subject websasts. If you have trouble downloading the webcasts, try a different browser (Google Chrome, in particular, seems to have trouble with some of the webcasts).
During the last year, I have turned my attention to creating classes that are focused entirely for an online audience, with its specific needs (shorter videos, more punchy presentations).
Semester long MBA Classes
Starting in the fall of 2001, my corporate finance and equity classes have been web cast. You can track the current semester's classes and use the presentations that go with the class. If the current semester is ongoing, the previous semester's classes are also archived. If you are trying to take this class online, you will probably have better luck accessing the archived semester's classes (rather than the current one).

The webcasts of a shorter executive ( three-day) valuation seminar and a three-day corporate finance seminar can also be downloaded. The formet covered primarily DCF valuation and is available in six three-hour sessions and the latter is a condensed version of my regular corporate finance class and is composed of six 3-hour sessions.

I also have short webcasts on tools/topics in valuation, dealing with primarily the nuts and bolts issues including how to read a 10K, how to create a trailing 12-month financial statement, how to convert leases to debt etc. You can find them at the link below:
Every year, I do a session on the art and craft of teaching. Since teaching is one of my passions, I enjoy talking about it and what I have learned about it over the last three decades.

For the last few years, I have done an annual webcast for AIMR. While you have to visit the AIMR site to see these webcasts, the material for the webcasts can be downloaded here:
There are webcasts that I have done over time for different units that are online. I don't control any of these videos but you can access them by going to the sites

Snippets of my presentations and lectures are now on Youtube. Given how dynamic that space is, I will not try to direct you to specific stops. Needless to say, if you do do find a YouTube piece that has me saying or doing anything that is not my forte (such as playing the Phantom of the Opera),skip over it very quickly. We all have our competitive advantages, and singing is not one of mine.
