Please download the software you need based on your course, your type of computer, and possibly the ISBN for your course. Make sure you save the downloaded file to a location you can remember. It is a compressed file that will need to be expanded before you can launch it. Once the file is expanded, an icon will appear on your desktop so that you can launch the software.

1.  Find the located of your saved Zip file.

2.  Select "Open" or double-click and Winzip will launch on your computer. 

3.  The file name should appear underneath the "Name" column in Winzip

4.   Select where you want to save the player, preferably on your computer desktop.

5.  Click on the name of the file and then select "Extract" or "Unzip."

     c.  For History of Jazz, it will be named JazzOnline.

11. Use the square "□" to stop, use the "^" (or up arrow) to eject the cd, use "≤" to rewind, and use "≥" to fast forward.
