Excellent At His job
By JYOTI R. on 15. January 2019 for Lower Limb Anatomy

i very much like how Dr James presents his work to everyone around him

Too brief
By Yasho S. on 15. December 2018 for Knee Joint โ€“ Joints of Lower Limb

Good brief overview of the knee joint but I wish the lecturer would have gone more in-depth about the menisci, and the rotational and translational movements of the knee.

decent, but wanting of some really beneficial features.
By Sean G. on 15. December 2018 for Lower Limb Anatomy

similar to Upper Limb; layout & structure of course is quite good. concise & detailed. but the images & diagrams used truly do have very small labels, often making them useful. The lecturer uses the cursor here and then but thats not conducive to great learning either. you really need to be visualising these structures in a large & clear format. Another point would be to include some mnemonics! it is no secret that these are one of the most useful tools for anatomy students in remembering complex structures, so why omit them? a final criticism is that it just lacks some more clinical relevance.

nice lecture
