Excellent organization. If is extremely easy to use. The videos are good because they are short enough to not be boring, but still give enough time to explain everything well. I would recommend this for introducing the organelles, and also giving it to the students as study material.

Videos just like animation tell story about how a particular process occurs. There is no reading, it is all watching. Abstract concepts that are difficult to understand in any other way are learned by watching people perform or demonstrate the process. This demonstration makes learning fast. Through videos, anybody can do self-study. The videos, audios and webinars help students to learn something for which a teacher would be required otherwise. The best part is, this self-study technique leaves a powerful impact on the brain, which might even be better than reading the same lesson from a book.

very useful to get students' attention and decrease levels of distraction. Watching a video instead of reading a text can be refreshing and needed from time to time. Big help when teaching multi-steps topics.

This is useful to the students as a learning tool. It will engage them in its graphics while also being a source of education.
