like it, though I didn't have a pre idea of neurophysiology but i found it realy easy to understand. I like the way of delivering the important messages by the professor; i.e changing his tone of voice, making it louder or... onething that I felt, was missing was Using a pointer, which I didn't know why he was not using.

Stay focused • Score well

Love lecturing videos! I find them very helpful as they cover the information of each topic in basic terms. I love that you can speed them up, pause them, and rewatch them for your convenience. The post video quizzes also help me stay engaged with the content I’m learning. I have noticed my grades improving after watching lecturing videos before my exams.
