MOOC Dropout: Stanford's Finance of Retirement and Pensions

I just withdrew from the Stanford Retirement and Pensions MOOC.  I really didn't want to, but I wasn't getting a reasonable benefit for the effort I was expending.  It's not the instructors fault.   I guess I traditional lectures and a chalkboard work better for me.

Lessons Learned:
1. Six 10 minute videos convey less information than one continuous lecture of half the length.
2. Too many graphics are distracting, not helpful.  I get it.  You have a green screen.  Now.stop.
3. Please post all of the videos at once, not as drips.
