  1. I just want to give suggestion concerning the camera. I wanted to look at the slide whenever the lecturer was discussing so that I can follow what he was talking about but sometimes the camera was not focusing on the slide. The camera should only capture the general audience if the lecturer is not discussing about the slide…This is the only thing I don't want in this video but generally the lecture is good…Thank You MIT. May you consider my advice…

  2. any one know where I can learn electricity from beginning up to present day? I want to learn practically every thing there is to know about electricity from credible sources that teach electricity from the first thing to learn about electricity up to the most recent understanding of electricity, so I have the most complete understanding I could have from the first thing to learn to the last understood piece of electrical knowledge that currently exists, and I want pieces of paper that say I know the things I know so people know that I know what i know.. you know, a diploma or certificate or some other credible valid piece of recognition so people trust my knowledge as valid information. i had problems growing up and i received my HSED (high school equivalency diploma) instead of going to high school. I'm guessing most people learn about the basics of electricity during high school and the HSED didn't include any electricity tests to graduate. I'm 30 years old now and still have issues I'm dealing with. many are symptoms relatable to aspergers syndrome or in other words, autism. so I have a unique ability to visualize things inside my head. I'd like to bring some ideas into our physical world but need help in many ways because I learn differently and because I simply am different. I've always seemed to write more than I speak unless something comes up where I talk and then after writing or speaking out of my mouth people respond in many ways but what I hear commonly is "deep" or "you're crazy man" or "you think too much". majority of my life I've always said the most inside my thoughts. it's always been difficult to express myself out of my mouth or to do what I'm thinking. like I said I'm 30 now and I'm just starting to learn how to feed myself and go shopping for food or clothes or hygiene. it's all difficult because I'm always thinking and when I go shopping for food, like today for example, I probably stood looking at BBQ sauce for like a half an hour, reading labels and seeing what's inside and what would be the safest or healthiest or most natural and of course which one would taste good and then try to find one that is reasonably priced as well. one of the symptoms autistic people have is focusing on details, and if that BBQ sauce true life story isn't enough to say I have that particular symptom than I guess there are also tons of other labels people could say about it as well. lots negative usually arise more than positive but that seems to be life. any who, I recently read that technology types of places sometimes are looking for people like me because people like me think differently and therefore can come up with untypical approaches thus producing a different result. I like hands on learning. so if someone was to teach me electricity I'd would learn best if every piece they talk about is present and demonstrated. I noticed the MIT people have responded to comments on here throughout the years since this video was posted so maybe someone at MIT will read this comment I'm writing and maybe there is a way we can help each other. there are many things I want to accomplish in life and it seems electricity is as vital to life as it is to sustaining human life and so I hope someone can help me in the right direction/s to learning electricity's ABC's and 123's.
