Horrible teacher
von Valerie M. am 05. April 2020 für Disorders of the Lens: Introduction

Disgusting. Very bad quality. Not enough information and the information presented isn't adequate

Qualifyed Educator
von Aisha A. am 22. April 2019 für Types of Muscle Contractions

very well explained and is easy to understand, the graphics were very clear and it was synchronized with the explanation , I would definitely like to watch another lecture from Mr.Thad Wilson.

von sinthia m. am 18. April 2019 für Neuron

He explained thoroughly and I was able to understand without having to use the lecture. I really like the quizzes that are given. wish the quiz had more questions though

great job
