    I ended up downloading each episode one by one to my Dropbox folder (under a PM Prepcast subfolder, of course.) Once everything was uploaded, I was able to view the episodes on my Android phone and Android tablet. You may want to remove the upload limit if you're going to use Dropbox though...~3GB can take awhile to upload. 

     

    (This is all for my personal use, BTW. I would not violate the PMI Code of Ethics.)

    Yes... uploading The PM PrepCast to your Dropbox for personal use and then connecting dropbox to your Android works. But as you have said, it takes a long time and uses up a lot of bandwidth. But it sort of seems like one step too many. The easier way might have been to simply connect your Android to your PC and then drag/drop the video lessons straight over. That only takes a few minutes.

    Actually, the might have been quicker, but I would have still needed to download each episode/PDF individually which was the longest part. I didn't mind that the upload to Dropbox took as long as it took, as I was just watching each episode on my media player on my laptop while the upload was taking place. Also, I have a tablet and a phone, both Dropbox enabled. The phone will get used to connect to my car for the MP3s. The tablet is great enough for the videos.

    Thank you so much for your response, Mr. Fichtner!  I had already earned my 35 hours with another video product that I had for free through my university. (The same company that allows PMI members to read their project management books for free......) Their video product is atrocious...yet I sat through a painful three weeks JUST so that I could get 19 certificates totalling 35 contact hours.) So far, your videos are so much better than that company's. However, I'm reserving full judgement until after October 27 (D-Day!) I'm just waiting for Amazon to give me my Rita M. and Andy Crowe materials in the meantime, but I will finish all of your materials by the end of the month!
