What Users are Telling Us
Graduate Neuro Anatomy Course
"I have ADHD, so I miss part of some lectures when I am unable to
concentrate for part of the lecture. It is a very big relief for the
first time in my life to know that the material I missed is available at
my fingertips for review, to fill in the gaps from class.Thank you for
developing software that helps students with learning disabilities review
the material in a form other than print. I cried when I used this.
"This program was a very useful tool for me. Between work, school and
family, my study time is sporadic. Lecture123 made it easier.
Additionally, attending an 8:15 p.m. class, I wasn't always alert.
Lecture123 gave me the opportunity to hear and see the lecture whenever
necessary for me. Love it!!"
"As a returning student I cannot tell you how helpful Lecture123 has been.
I have used the tool to review lessons, assist me in homework questions,
and in preparing for exams. Additionally, I found the tool to be great
compliment to Blackboard's functionality.For a student like myself who
holds a demanding full time job Lecture123 has allowed me to keep up with
the pace of the class. I truly hope that my university makes the
investment to bring Lecture123 to every classroom. As a working student
with a rigorous schedule Lecture123 offers the flexibility I need to
finish my undergraduate studies. Furthermore, I hope that eventually the
University can leverage Lecture123 to offer on-line courses. I can truly
see my school setting itself apart from other state universities if it
can offer Lecture123 in every classroom and eventually offer on-line

realized what his students had been receiving all these years: he did
not speak clearly and did not respond to questions as well as he would
like. He thanked us for helping him become a better lecturer.

One of his students, a working mother, was reviewing a lecture with
Lecture123 at home. She didn't realize that her child was also watching.
