Very interesting and good
As others have noted; audio quality is lacking some, but you can hear most of what is said.
Great content, but audio is seriously lacking
Great content and the professor is very good at giving real-world analogies which are easy to comprehend. The problem is that the mic must be attached to the podium and when he walks away you can barely hear what he is saying. Would be much better if they would simply attach a mic to the prof so the audio would be consistent. Thanks so much for the very educational material, its greatly appreciated.
Great lecture series
This professor has a great way of keeping it interesting but also inspiring. Highly recommend this.
