The questions are too trivial and poorly placed.

The lecturer is good, but more editing is needed, specially towards the end of the course.

Utilize the fact that it is a video lecture. Incorporate visual aids in the discussion for the students to further understand the topics.

Good information, but the quality of the material is below standard.

NO visual, just "man in front of camera talking". SHOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.

BIG TIME Indian accent, causing me to have to go back and check if i got it right.

BAD editing: professor sometimes repeats the same part, cause he lost his flow and THE EDITOR DIDN'T cut all of those out!

RANDOM captions. Sometimes none, sometimes way too many and in no way reflective of the most important thing being said!

AUDIO sometimes good, sometimes ... not so good.

FRAMING: camera moves off the background, so you see part of the wall behind it.

QUESTIONS; Sometimes the correct answered is marked as wrong in the question that pops up during a lesson.

QUIZZES: You can't review your answers in the quizzes! Good luck learning from your mistakes ...

It's a shame really, because going over these basics is really helpful in gaining a thorough understanding of the markets and I think the professor has really valid insights and the right mindset to teach people. I had to fight my way through the frustration though.

An additional investment of a couple of hours and a few dollars and this could be a fine course!
