It is divided into short videos which can be completed quickly and efficiently, hence helping one maintain their concentration. Dr. Joel Hartter is an expert in his field.

There should be a greater variation in the format so that it is not exclusively videos with the same teacher. There are also many repetitions through the three courses.
