All of the conversations I have participated in (10, at least) have been very good, and some have been excellent. A few were marred by technical issues, but the content was still good.
The presenter was very well organized and covered this complicated story line in an easy to follow lecture. I particularly enjoyed his openess to questions.
first time I was not happy with lecture. so much new material and new names the I felt he ran through - has a hard time keeping up with new Arab names and lecturer's accent. in the end just took pictures of every slide so I could review on my own later. don't know if others had the same issue. there should be a an agenda sent to us beforehand so we can be familiarized with SOME of the material beforehand, otherwise warn us that this is not for beginners
Concise, thorough and educational experience
