And yes, you MUST use this application. Microsoft offers a
free trial of this application that will suffice for use in
our course. The "30 day" free trial actually expires at the end of the month

Free Download Manager

pick-up where it left off in the event of an interruption in the download. Note:

connection. You don't want to get to hour 22 and have to start over from 0!.
This is a "Web-Based" course.
