Excellent lecture
By The Anh B. on 22. March 2018 for Bone Tissue

Very good teacher! Improvement suggestions: - Integrate USMLE-like questions at the end of each chapter - Mark histological structures in image if they are described Thank you

Excellent lecture + few suggestions for improvement
By The Anh B. on 22. March 2018 for Muscle Tissue

Prof. Meyer is an excellent teacher. His lecturing method is very clear and pleasant. Maybe some constructive improvement tips: - In most lectures Prof. Meyer would describe an histological structure while showing an image. But those particular feature he was describing weren't always marked so in those cases I wasn't sure which structure he was talking about (but in some few videos there were nice animation, so maybe you guys are already working on this point) - Secondly, i was wondering if some of those subjects would be relevenat for the USMLE (Step 1). If it is, I think, it would be a pretty cool feature to integrate some USMLE-like questions after each video (also for other topisc than histology)

Very clear!

cheap lecture slides
By chen c. on 20. March 2018 for Capillaries: Overview

cheap lecture slides put key points and words instead of just whole bunch of diagrams. at least label the diagrams
