Default profile "The lesson is excellent. However, the new interface is clumsy and tedious. The old interface was so much easier to use and was quicker, with far less mouse clicks required. Sometimes change is NOT for the better! Why not display all tasks one after another on the same page? And allow the videos to play right on the page where its image is displayed? Not all this "Back to Task", "Next", "Previous" wastefulness." ★★★★★
