In order to do the analyses shown in the videos, you need to install some software and R packages on your computer. The software includes R and RStudio. The R packages includes the package ascr and all its dependencies. 

You can download R from this website: https://cran.r-project.org/

You can download RStudio from this website: https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/

The R package ascr written by Dr. Ben Stevenson can be installed from his github site:

We also prepared a video that will guide you through the installation process. You can watch it here:

Quick intro to RStudio

There are good introductory tutorials online. You can find them by searching for 'RStudio tutorial' on YouTube.com. Here are some recommendations: 

One tutorial that I really liked was this one: 

RStudio for the Total Beginner - YouTube

It is a great, basic introduction to RStudio and its four panels.

 

This tutorial goes into a lot more detail: 

R Programming for Beginners | Complete Tutorial | R & RStudio - YouTube

If you manage all the material in here, you will be well prepared for working with RStudio and R. Note: the tutorial starts with the instructor working in R (outside RStudio) but switches to RStudio after a few minutes.
