Student’s questions could not be heard

After the second episode I downgraded my review from five to three stars. Although this is a classroom setting I felt that the experience was diminished because I could not hear student’s questions and the discussion becomes one sided. The good perfessor does not always repeat the (unheard) question and it detracts from my enjoyment of the course. Otherwise these podcasts are well thought out and very thought provoking and relevant to my life.

the right to free education

i love the idea of democratizing education and liberating it from the confines of the university. thank you dr. rodriguez for providing generations access to this knowledge who normally would have taken generations to acquire it through self-study.
