Great work and ressources - thank you so much.

Dear Elea, I cannot explain why you are unable to download MP3s from Spring 2015: All the links for the MP3 tracks from those 3 classes immediately open in a new tab (in my Firefox browser) and begin playing, ready for download. Those tracks are: ! & 2 of Class 3; ! & 2 of Class 4; and 1-3 of Class 5.

It is especially odd if you have been able to download tracks for other Classes. Different browsers may require the user to use different methods for downloading. The browser I am familiar with is Firefox, and if I can answer questions about how to download via Firefox.

Another possibility, is that you are referring to classes from a term other than SPRING 2015?
