A note from the organizer:
I hate to have to say this, but your face must be visible in the video. Being in the class means no driving, skiing, running on a treadmill, bathing (I have never seen that one, but the commission has) we have to state this because people are still doing it. This is not just for credit but as a show of respect to the instructors and the other students. -Mikel
