Very concise and to the point. Stable and calm teaching. Was my first foray into renewable energy and absolutely loved it. The course instructor was brilliant and had a stable command over the topic.

I give 2.5 stars. This course is for beginners so it shall not have so many specifics. In my opinion the lessons ought to be streamlined not to confuse or even frustrate students. I think the content's good but go into too much unecessary technical details. Perhaps the course should be split in two and the first part could have a simplified syllabus, skiping all the technicalities.

It was a really nice course and i think it gave a good introduction to the whole world of solar cells.

Unfortunately, i couldn't help but begin to get annoyed at the fact that you could see the video being edited ten times in a two-minute video. even though the editing was actually impressingly good, it gave a kinda un-teacher-y impression

But overall i liked the course ^_^
