Great Online ressource, A Disection part possible?
By OKWIR A. on 27. November 2020 for Lower Limb Anatomy

Really clear explanation, not bulky yet almost exhaustive. I wish there were an accompanying atlas, I mean real disection showing the discussed content. I think it's really important for better grasp of the concept. Thanks, Aron Okwir, Uganda.

 
This lecture was so confusing.
By Saradha B. on 23. November 2020 for Bone Formation

So far this lecture series has been good but this particular lecture is so hard to follow. The explanations aren't clear, and the professor not pointing out anything is a problem. This has been pointed out in previous lectures as well, and the explanation given is that it's better for us if we try to find it ourselves. This is the first time we are coming across structures like this. It would be better if the professor at least points out an example to us for the first time and then allows us to identify it ourselves later. Otherwise, these lectures have been good except for this one.

 
It's helpful
By Otaru O. on 17. November 2020 for Lower Limb Anatomy

It help me to go forward and to track my progress

 
Good explanation for upper limb
By Carolina L. on 17. November 2020 for Upper Limb Anatomy

I did like this course but in some cases, I wish the images were larger as I had to keep referring back to my netter because the ones shown were not clear enough. I also wish that the professor show the movements when talking about what action each muscle does, whether through a picture or just simply showing them himself.
