Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where's the rest... or at least an update? Seems quite annoying for Wondrium to produce this FIRST lecture and then never release the rest... and some of these reviews are 2 years old...! Please allow the fans of this pilot (and perhaps other pilots) to view some type of update on if and when the full course will be released... or else we are forced to go to other sources for the promised content. I personally found this professor to be very likeable, believable, and professional, if slightly nervous (I'd be a WRECK, so I think he did GREAT)... I am VERY interested in seeing the rest of HIS course. Would appreciate an update. Thanks and happy learning!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay It was interesting enough but certain parts of the video felt like they were directed towards neurotypical people, and researched on and by neurotypical people. When he talks about “preferred” learning strategies is when he lost me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great start I hope to see the rest of this course soon and not just the teaser! I am exploring similar topics on other platforms and in my reading, in preparation to learn other skills. This course would be of great benefit to me.
