Good overview class; excellent for beginners. Video quality a little choppy at times. Second week's workload seemed unbalanced to the other week's requirements.

It was a great journey indeed, however, I recommend that the team of instructors work on their video editing before publishing it on the site for public Access.

The content was top notch and this has been an excellent course, but there are some misspellings on slides and the audio could be improved in places.

Some of the lectures could have been placed in a different order. One or two of the lectures near the end could have been placed a little higher up.
