yes. it is a good match. for me. But I am not used to talking a class without a book or a paper to follow. Once the teacher says something the words are gone. I have no place to go to to review. After finishing Lecter I was a litter disappointed. I expected a little bit more in depth..

I was sorry that the visuals and the information did not always match on my computer. A long pause to download during lecture 5. I found the small picture of the instructor with her movements, hair and hands, distracting. It appeared that she is new to video.

I am enjoying the course but about halfway through the second lecture the slides are out of sync with what she is saying. For example, while she is talking about the statue of Khafre (not sure of spelling) the photo of the statue was on the previous slide.
