Studyshops are like a "website on a CD", except it is a "website" containing four to five hours of audio files which are the full-day workshop. These audio files are opened by clicking a link on the Studyshop's main page. The whole Studyshop runs from your computer's CD or DVD player. You do not need to be on-line. Better still, it is yours to own and play as often as you like, so you can revisit a workshop over many years.
Studyshops consist of Mp3 audio files, graphics and text all linked together via html files. All of this opens automatically on your computer using your browser (the software you are using now to look at this web page).
The core of each Studyshops is always an audio workshop. This is then supported by textual material which either expands the ideas put forward in the workshop or enhances and extends those ideas with background or historical information, as well as images, photographs and paintings which contain or symbolise those ideas.
Each Studyshop contains many hours of lectures, with accompanying pages, articles and background information. The Studyshops contain MP3 files and many graphic files and require a computer to be seen and heard.
Each Studyshop is designed to open automatically in your PC (Windows 98 or later) Apple Macintosh or Unix/Linux platforms.
When you insert the Studyshop into your computer’s CD or DVD drive, the Studyshop opens on the title page. Click on the name of the workshop, in the same way as you surf the web, to open the main page. You will see all the audio files listed by order down the centre, along with descriptions of the workshop sessions. By clicking Part 1 or Part 2, and so on, you will automatically open your computer's sound system which will play the audio file. As you move your mouse across the different links on the page, you will find Bonus gateways or portals into other articles, images and background information which open while you are listening to the audio files. You can open your word processor and take notes as you listen, as the audio files will run in the background.
