1.2.1 Installing and Setting up OpenModelica

Course subject(s) Module 1. Introduction to OpenModelica

In the video, the lecturer says week 4. This is because we had initially planned to launch the IEPG1x and IEPG2x courses as a single course. But later, we decided to release them as two separate courses. Since this lecture was initially part of week 4 of the combined course, the lecturer says week 4 in a module 1 lecture.

Please ignore what is said in the transcripts, as there is nothing to worry, you are on the right page and haven’t missed anything.
