We have a number of speakers with equal ingenuity I see. These are all great examples of how teachers of Stata might set up their materials. Come to think of it, they remind me now of Stas' (I think) regression tutorial that I saw way back when I used Stata 7. In any case, if one is teaching Stata to a class, building the materials this way (into the viewer) might be a good idea. What does Richard Williams think? Too much work for the teacher?

Thanks!

I also did a number of SMCL talks, using a slightly different

approach, I think. See, for example,

http://ideas.repec.org/p/boc/dsug07/01.html.

Instructions:

1. Extract ZIP archive into a directory.

2. -cd- to the directory in Stata.

3. Type -help Essen07_jann-

He uses the viewer to show code and slides, but hyperlinks in .do files to execute code, etc. Really effective. There are of course bits and pieces of this approach in existing help files, but here it is done more completely.

say that I learned most of this from a presentation by Nick Cox at the

2007 Nordic and Baltic Stata Users' Group Meeting

( http://ideas.repec.org/s/boc/nsug07.html ), and he informed me that

he in turn learned most of it from a talk by Vince Wiggins at the 2004

United Kingdom Stata Users' Group Meeting

( http://ideas.repec.org/s/boc/usug04.html )

Although I like this way of presenting, it is not the most user

friendly way of distributing the presentation: the presentation

consists of a .zip file with 77 different files. To help make sense of

it, it does contain a readme.txt explaining where to get started, but

some have understandably overlooked that file and got lost. For that

reason I have copied the content of the readme.txt below:

================== begin readme.txt ========================

The following steps need to be taken in order to view this

presentation:

1. Extract the files in the .zip file to a separate directory.

2. Start Stata

3. Use -cd- to change to directory where you extracted the files from

the .zip file.

4. Type -view mlbsnasug08.smcl-

=================== end readme.txt =========================
