Comments on course content

I thought I’d create a seperate topic for compliments, tips & tricks and other comments on the course content.

What I like about this course is that it’s quite open in the sense that you invite students to explore for themselves. I think this can help to get different kinds of people in different corners of DeFi.

Just a note: in some of the videos you stop briefly and say something about cutting those bits out. I just want to let you know that those moments are still in there.

Thank you @DeanvTooren for the feedback we will soon also create a questionnaire with feedback soon. All editing issues should be solved.

I kind of struggle with this course, meaning that I have 0 knowledge about economics. Like literally, I know almost nothing about this topic. At the moment I am at “financial risk in DeFi” and have to look up so many terms, like “liquidity”, or “interest rate” and have only a vague understanding of what this is. Does anybody know a good book or youtube channel where I can learn about basic economic concepts, so I’m well prepared for this course? I also hope that things will get clearer once im deeper in the course lol, cause sometimes thats the case

Maybe it’s better you get a basic understanding about economics and finance in general before you enter the DeFi side of it. Ray Dalio has some interesting videos that are explained in an understandable way, but that’s just one example.

I am enjoying the course so far, but sometimes the window of lecturer is blocking interesting content. I know there are slides left to read after the lecture, but it probably might be made in a bit more convenient way to see everything at the actual moment of watching. Thanks :slight_smile:

Hey illyushin, how did you go with the rest of the course? I am also finding the course hard to follow.

Hi, I mostly googled some terms I didn’t understand. I didn’t dug deep into the course and skipped a lot, for me it was enaugh to just know what financial opportunities are there with DeFi and not how exactly it works.

I am genuinely enjoying this course. There was much I knew previously about the space but getting a more professional in-depth view of the environment is humbling. Your content is clear but I needed to re-watch a few times to digest the information. My current thought is that corona has shown to be the black swan that will likely disrupt the Ecosystem by bringing about the socio-economic consequences of the failures of the current financial system. I do not doubt that DeFi will become the highest standard in finance, I am just concerned of the global suffering that it will take to get it there.

See ya next review :+1:

Yeah I agree. I also find it sometimes difficult to understand the instructor. I can’t always make out what he is saying. It seems like the structure of this course could be a little more organized as well. It’s more of a free flow of ideas sometimes. Overall it is good info but could use some improvement.

Hi
also like the course, one gets interesting inputs and know.
what i would like to have a bit more in defi 201 is some deeper practical approach.so that we can use and master some of the tools and platforms that are available. it would imo be good in being quite swiftly in a couple of tactics, platforms. For example, i would be able to master staking on synthetix (or another protocol, that is recommended to use) and have minimum certainty, that it makes sense what i do and it is also relatively save. (could also be instruments on compound for example, or providing liquity and earn passive interest on platforms…such abilities would make us maybe interesting for business )
