A fundamental problem in method

Right from the beginning, I had a problem: the viewer is hearing one message and reading another. It's like hearing two lecturers talking on a subject at the same time. Have they never heard of the interference effect? Also (and this is an age thing) I find the pace too quick, especially given the first problem. It makes me sad, because the course content looks loke it would be great.

Wouldn't recommend

Information is given way too quickly and is at sometimes incorrect.

Very fast, an overview

This is just a brief, quick overview of art history and should only be used as either an introduction or review. Names and terms are thrown but rarely explained. The course overall as well as the individual videos go through the material very fast. The instructor doesn't read, explain, or refer to the slides a lot of the times, so sometimes you have to pause to read them. Worth looking at for a short, quick overview.

Nice Art timeline traveller

That's great collection with straight-forward and informative 40 art 'stops'. Nice briefings and useful keywords for every period. Thank you. Xin nian kuai le, happy lunar new year!

An excellent overview

This podcast is outstanding as an overview for the casually interested, and a perfect meta-narrative for those that have some familiarity with the topic. This podcast is a great example of democratic learning; a presentation built from a sincere interest in the subject and given to the rest of us. Thank you, Dr. Willette!

Too fast!

Take it slow, please. I would love to learn more about art history and to appreciate arts but these videos run like high speed trains. I really cannot catch up.
