Excellent presentation
By Ali Akebat S. on 26. September 2018 for Muscle Tissue

Excellent perfomance and pedagogically presented. I would like to have some structure pointed out on the image, and some examples. I would like to know further more what to pay attention to etc.

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)
