Each video module allows you to move to any point by powerpoint slide. The presentations simultaneously show the lecturer and the slides.

The three-hour geotextiles seminar was moderated by IGS Past President Daniele Cazzuffi and included many well-known names in the geosynthetics field and leaders from the International Geosynthetics Society. They discussed long-term durability, use in hydraulic applications, waste management, sustainability, and much more.
