Again, video narrative is super confusing
with all due respect, I'm sure Andrew's a great developer, but in my honest opinion, he should not be a teacher.
i think u shud leave treehouse and take down all ur videos and make better ones. absolute worst teacher here

To be honest, he is nice man and an excellent developer, but not a good teacher. Because he does not know the right way to teach.
I think the topic is confusing, to be fair. If you watch it again it may click into place? He does cover the subject in a roundabout way sometimes, but the subject is sprawling!
Personally, if there is a teacher at treehouse that I admire the most, it certainly will be Andrew Chalkley, I just love the way he passes through the information and how he explains it in a way that you ll get it softly ! Keep it up.

I think he is a fine teacher. Some of the older courses were more like code-along screencasts. Recently Treehouse has started to move towards courses where (a) each video is under 3-4 minutes whenever possible, (b) tried to keep things to one concept per video and (c) one high level concept per course.
That said, their planning and course design has consistently improved with every new course they've released, and I have no doubt that trend will continue.

I like Andrew's courses. He's a fellow Englishman ;)
I've taken the Object Oriented JS course and IMO it's just fine. He speaks slowly and articulately and you can always go back through the videos and even try to contact him through these forums.
