Could be so much better
There is great info in here, but the presentation is lackluster with good resolution video of the speaker (which we don't need) and generally poor resolution images of the speaker's slides (which we do need). I would love it if in the future the IT folks could eliminate the speaker video and only have the slides. Also, in general most of these slides could be so much more impactful with some editing and graphics in there. Wonderful topics and great information and experts, but poor presentation overall. Does every video have to be offset from the audio track? It makes the video distracting and hard to watch. I expected better from Harvard.
