Free Video Tutorials & Free Tools

Here are two sets of video tutorials on Java. They provide a good introduction to Java – from installing the Java Development Kit to using object oriented programming techniques.

The first set was produced by Curtis Fonger, a MIT student. This set of videos uses EasyEclipse with Java. The videos are produced in Adobe Flash, and can be viewed by clicking here. Here is the second set of video tutorials on Java. You can click on the headings to open the video in a new window where it can be enlarged to full-screen.
