Useful info, lots of research provided. (It would have been excellent except for excessive questions from viewers who were obviously not paying attention or below the intellectual/academic level needed to follow the presentation.)
The handouts supported the oral presentation well. I didn't give it an "excellent" rating because the information was at an intensity level that made it hard to assimilate. I had to do the recorded session b/c my internet connection on the day of the webinar was too slow to maintain the presentation, but I'm actually glad I had to do the recorded session, which allowed me to rewind/replay parts I didn't immediately "get."
