Happy New Year from Wolfram Research and Mathematica 7.
We found a common theme at many schools we visited that integrated Mathematica into their courses in 2008: faculty wanted to teach with Mathematica, but didn't want to take the time to teach Mathematica itself. Thus we created the "Hands-on Start to Mathematica" screencast.
In its first month, over 10,000 faculty and students watched the screencast, and a large number of faculty made it the first homework assignment for the class. In fact, one university has already reported improved homework and test scores after implementing this screencast.
We have now updated it for Version 7: http://url.wolfram.com/43rL1y/
"Hands-on Start to Mathematica" can get you and your students using Mathematica (and more importantly, really understanding it) within 20 minutes. You can also post this link to your class page, departmental website, or wherever students and colleagues can most easily access it.
If you need assistance (or have feedback or suggestions for future screencasts), please contact me.
