I liked this course, but wish the video lectures were less long and that they were more than the professor talking.  The information is good, the presentation is not particularly outstanding. I would recommend segments of this to individual students, but I don't find anything here that I would use in a course.

It's not impossible to create lecture type podcasts or videos that include interaction.
