Very fast, an overview

This is just a brief, quick overview of art history and should only be used as either an introduction or review. Names and terms are thrown but rarely explained. The course overall as well as the individual videos go through the material very fast. The instructor doesn't read, explain, or refer to the slides a lot of the times, so sometimes you have to pause to read them. Worth looking at for a short, quick overview.

A fundamental problem in method

Right from the beginning, I had a problem: the viewer is hearing one message and reading another. It's like hearing two lecturers talking on a subject at the same time. Have they never heard of the interference effect? Also (and this is an age thing) I find the pace too quick, especially given the first problem. It makes me sad, because the course content looks loke it would be great.

Wouldn't recommend

Information is given way too quickly and is at sometimes incorrect.
