Excellent presentation by the lecturer I don't think it be could be better explained. Looking forward to the rest of this topic.

Poor Presentation
By Flora I. on 01. May 2018 for Veins – Thoracic Vessels

I chose this rating because the structures the Lecturer is describing are unclear and difficult to follow. If the instructure had better visualization--such as highlighting the veins as he spoke--that would help immensley. An additional thing that would have helped is to have a visual summary of which veins feed into which at the end of the segment so the students could organize the vein tributaries better in their minds. I like the over all information, it just needs to be presented better.
