Yay
By Aldo R. on 13. August 2019 for Microbiology: Introduction

I love the lectures so much. I like trip on steroids I never have consumed lol. However. I think it would be great if they had the ten second mark or arrow so that it would rewind or fast forward the lecture. It’d Save time just like you tube videos and stuff. Thank you kindly

 
No subtitles for foreign speakers :(

Great but insufficient. The second part has no subtitles for foreign speakers

 
good pedagogy.
By Paul J. on 13. July 2019 for Microbiology: Introduction

A calm and organized lecture made in a way that is easy to recollect with the start and end saying what we are going to learn and what we have learned.
