these video lectures aren't boring. they are very interesting
By Fathimath S. on 16. October 2017 for Upper Limb Anatomy

I learn better by listening and visualizing. So these lecturio lecture videos helps me a lot. Reading the text book after watching these is way better than trying to learn from the textbook alone. Also these video lectures aren't boring. they are very interesting. If someone is struggling to learn anatomy on their own, then I'd really recommend this for them.

Thank you very much for this course. It helped me understand the anatomy of the upper limb very well.

Woops! The suprascapular notch!
By Ryan L. on 18. September 2017 for Scapula – Bones and Surface Anatomy of Upper Limb

I certainly liked the video format, where we can adjust the focus from the speaker to the slide, and use the cursor to aid in pinpointing the relevant aspects of the scapula. The only thing I found was missing was a little aside about the suprascapular notch, which was shown in the slide, but not alluded to in the actual video lecture!
