The animation is helpful for students, but he speaks quickly. This video should be stopped at key moments to allow students time to process the information and have short discussion. Taking notes would be highly recommended and maybe even watching the video twice. This would work for online learning or a flipped classroom. This is much shorter than Crash Course's other videos.
