Data handling in MITK

For a short explanation of the navigation through the tutorial, press DOWN.

Navigation through the tutorial slides

In the lower right corner you see four little arrows showing you the ways you can go from this slide.

If an arrow turns bold, you can follow it in this direction, if you want to.
(For example videos with additional information about the current topic, are always in these "basement slides".)

Besides the arrow keys you can also use the space bar, it navigates you through every single slide.

When you press "Esc", you will see an overview about all the available slides.

With Alt + clicking on a certain spot in the slide, you can zoom in.
