Use pointer
By samuel j. on 08. June 2019 for The Skin is a Large Sensory Receptor Organ

Needs to use pointer during lecture. He's telling us to look at something but he's not pointing it out.

Es muy fácil de comprender y toca puntos esenciales, no se va por cuestiones que corresponden a clases más especializadas, se enfoca en el nivel exacto en el que está. Las imágenes histológicas y los esquemas son detallados y claros.
