Amateur hour Videos are mostly just a video of a live class (including mostly inaudible and non-useful questions from the students in the class). The other videos were someone standing next to a wall with a projected image of slides or text in too small a font. I'm not even sure how someone in that room could view that unless they stood right next to the wall. No syllabus, no grading/certificate info. Boring, redundant videos with little content and content that was often outdated, practices that are no longer considered best practices. I know they focus on life sciences so some things are different than with IT startups, but the instructors need to have a serious chat with someone like Steve Blank to figure out how adapt the new best practices in IT to their industry. Watching this class made me feel like it was 30 years ago. Ugh. Though I would like to learn info on financing startups I had ZERO confidence I would not be mislead do...
