The lightboard sessions were well done, one of the best replacements for a whiteboard in an online class I've seen. Being able to see the topics drawn out in real time, while the instructor talked about it, would have taken a lot longer to draw in software, so it seems like a good happy medium.

This course provided me with an organized view of a bunch of concepts and tools I was already familiar with, but were completely dispersed in my mind. Now I can see the big picture of the forest, and not only the trees.

The detailed explanation of the origin and concepts truly helps one to relate to the topic being explained. Light board sessions were very good, with the flow for each topic.
