I found Lecturio on Youtube and I enjoyed the way the information is presented in each video. This allows me to follow along.

Classification of connective tissue by function

CT proper: mesenchyme, lax fibrillary, dense fibrillary, reticular, elastic, adipose and pigment. Supporting CT: cartilage and bone. Trophic CT: blood and lymph.

Dr. Meyer has really interesting lectures and makes Histology fun! I think his pacing works well, and he has a natural and straightforward way of explaining concepts.

Great course but title organization is weird
By Ben N. on 16. November 2018 for Connective Tissue

Very good course and explanations. I am just wondering why lecturio organizes epithelial tissue videos under the subtopic connective tissue, that is a bit confusing.
