Lecture was clear, concise and easy to understand. Information is carefully structured organized to facilitate quick recall.
By Sophia L. on 02. March 2019 for Overview of the Course โ€“ Overview of Vascular Diseases

I chose this rating because after watching the video just once, I had a 90 - 100% pass rate on the follow up quizes. I did not need to review each video clip. The information was clear, short and exact which gave me an opportunity to fully understand and absorb the content being discussed. The animations are extremely well organized and clear - indeed a useful component of this learning environment.

Dr. Joseph Alpert MD. does a good job explaining the structure of the layers of the blood vessels.

Human specimen images
By riyah h. on 17. March 2018 for Physical Principles That Influence Blood Circulation โ€“ Blood vessels and blood circulation

Explanation was simplified which then made understanding of the topic at hand simplistic. However, an opinion of mine would be that human specimen images should be shown before the explanation rather than later on in the lecture .
