Material needed for your presentation classes

Pour les cours vous devez vous munir des trois services ou matériels suivants :

1. Accès à l’internet, (chez vous ou un ami, à l’université, dans un café internet, etc.).

2. Accès au logiciel MS PowerPoint or similar. You have several ways of getting presentation software, especially PowerPoint :

• Sur votre propre ordinateur : PowerPoint fait parti du groupe de logiciels « MS Office » (dans lequel vous trouvez également MS Word). Make sure that you save your slide shows under the 2003 format (.ppt for XP), not 2007 (.pptx for vista).

• A l’UNS, dans un labo informatique.

• En téléchargeant un logiciel équivalent gratuit, Impress, à www.openoffice.org. Attention : Bien vérifier que les fichiers Impress que vous sauvegardez soient compatibles avec PowerPoint 2003 (.ppt, not .pptx).

• You can use Google Drive (cloud computing) and then download your file in .ppt format.

• An excellent review of alternatives to MS Office can be found here:



o ThinkFree Office Online This free on-line office suite uses standard Microsoft-Office file formats for its default formats, making it the most Office-compatible of the online productivity suites.

o OpenOffice.org This enterprise-level open-source Microsoft Office alternative is powerful and highly compatible with Office-format files (through Office 2003), but it's marred by a dreary and complex interface.

o WordPerfect Office X3 Standard Edition It's mostly going to appeal to WordPerfect's long-standing legal, academic, and professional audiences, but Corel's Office suite is definitely worth a look if Word's peculiarities get on your nerves.

o IBM Lotus Symphony Beta This free productivity application suite is based on OpenOffice.org, with IBM's professional-level interface on top. It's not as flexible or as advanced as MS Office, but it is one of the best desktop-based Office alternatives.

o Google Docs Beta Google Docs Beta is fast, elegant, convenient, and free—all of which adds up to an Editors' Choice—winning online office suite.

o Zoho This smorgasbord of free online services has more functions than any other MS Office alternative, but that doesn't add up to a best-of-breed service.

3. Une clef USB – permettant d’apporter vos fichiers PowerPoint en cours.

N’attendez pas le début des cours pour mettre en place ces éléments. Vous en avez besoin des la deuxième séance.

Peace and survival of life on Earth as we know it are threatened by human activities that lack a commitment to humanitarian values.  Destruction of nature and natural resources results from ignorance, greed, and a lack of respect for the Earth's living things... .  It is not difficult to forgive destruction in the past, which resulted from ignorance.  Today, however, we have access to more information, and it is essential that we re-examine ethically what we have inherited, what we are responsible for, and what we will pass on to coming generations.  Clearly this is a pivotal generation... .  Our marvels of science and technology are matched if not outweighed by many current tragedies, including human starvation in some parts of the world, and extinction of other life forms... .  We have the capability and responsibility.  We must act before it is too late.  Tenzin Gyatso the fourteenth Dalai Lama.
