Online lecture material (videos)

Hello, I am trying to go over the videos for M103. I am finding the hand gestures rather distracting and would prefer more of a powerpoint or textbook format where I can go at my own pace. I am finding I have to keep stopping and rewinding to transcribe what is being said. Are there .pdf files I can download and read about this on a tablet or ebook reader? I would even accept a book if it wasn’t priced too high.

Hi Marcus,

Thank you for reaching out.

Unfortunately, the course is not available in a different format. That said, I can recommend the different courses available on as great reference do learn different part of the product suite. Additionally, the book MongoDB: The Definitive Guide: Powerful and Scalable Data Storage also covers the content of the M103 course. Keep in mind that the book was released in 2019. New features are therefore not covered.

If you have more questions about MongoDB University or need assistance with one of the course, don’t hesitate to send an email to the team at

Thank you,

Davenson Lombard
