Love the fact that I can learn something from home. Historical topics are my favorites and I especially like lectures that have a “tour”- like component-with maps and current photos along with historical ones.
I love the concept of Context Conversations and I want to support Context. My experiences with Context walks have been amazing; however my experience with Conversations hasn't been so good. I was sent an incorrect link for the first talk, so never got to attend. The second one had technical difficulties. It was 15 minutes late getting started due to problems with viewing slides and sound. It seemed that Nigel either didn't have the technical know how or the patience (or both) to resolve the issues. I thought he acted like kind of a jerk towards the person trying to help him. Preferably all of those issues would have been worked out before the start time so that the presentation didn't run late. The sound continued to be problematic throughout the presentation, so it was hard to understand what Nigel was saying at times.
The audio was really awful. I feel like I should take it again to get everything out of it. Nigel certainly tried but wither his wifi was slow or zoom was overrun!
The technical problems have seemed to increase of late. I had the wrong link for the session last week and the sound was really problematic this week. Content is excellent - but hard to follow with the sound breakup.
