Amazing

I wanted to study ChemIn because it was applied Chemistry but I was afraid I end up working in an oil industry or something like that, after this classed I think I made the right choice, ChemIn can also make hearts, and test to diagnose conditions or diseases

More jokes than engineering

Not a lot of engineering instruction, lots of stories about the prof and how he broke rules and goofed around a lot. Not a good course if you are serious about learning the engineering, go elsewhere

Bad camera work.

While this is an excellent lecture series, it suffers from poor camera work. This seems to be a common problem with many itunesU programs: the camera operators (probably students for the most part) want to focus on the lecturer's face, rather than the notes he is pointing at or writing on the board. I can HEAR what he is saying, but I need to SEE what he is talking about! This is not the fault of the professor, who again, is excellent, but the purpose of the lecture needs to be kept in mind: The viewer wants to learn the material, not admire the face of the professor. This appears to be a common problem with many, many itunesU series. Some even show the reactions of students in the lecture hall, which is downright silly.

Some creators of these programs have realized this sort of flaw, and replaced these lecture hall programs with narrated Powerpoint-type presentations, or programs that just show the lecturer writing on a chalkboard, without students present.

That said, itunesU is great and a great resource.
