IECM Video Tutorials

The videos listed below have been produced to guide you through different features of the IECM, to help you get the most out of the model—whether you are a novice user or an advanced analyst. Each video lasts 5-15 minutes, and is presented by a member of the IECM research team.


These videos were produced using an earlier version of the IECM. There are 2 excerpts from the User Manual which may be particularly helpful. We recommend that you read the section on the session window; the last page of this section includes an illustration of how the old interface maps onto the new one. If you are completely unfamiliar with the IECM, you may also wish to go through the case study to familiarize yourself with the new interface. The full User Manual comes with the IECM, or you may download it here.

Most modern computers can play these videos without the need for additional software. But if needed, you can view them with QuickTime Player, which is available as a free download here.

Note that most of these videos display IECM screens which would be difficult to read at lower resolution. So in the interest of avoiding headaches (literally) for viewers, we have chosen a single format that allows for comfortable viewing. These videos are somewhat large—typically around 80MB each—so please be patient when downloading them.

NOTE: As of April 2013, the Mac version of Firefox does not start playing the videos until they are completely downloaded, and it does not give any indication as to how long the download will take. Safari and Chrome on the Mac, and Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox under Windows start playing almost immediately. You may also right-click any of the video links and save the video for later viewing.

The following video tutorials are available. Note that these videos were produced using an earlier version of the IECM which employed tabs for navigation, instead of the menus in the new graphical interface. Nonetheless, the procedures and functionality illustrated in these videos apply as well to the current model version.
