SN1 and SN2 Reactions

This video is basically a PowerPoint with a presenter explaining it in audio 
format. It explains the four mechanisms seen in SN1 and SN2 reactions in Organic 
Chemistry I. It explains basic concepts in these reactions that can be easily 
found in the textbook. There is no depiction of creativity in the video. It is 
so monotonic that most Organic Chemistry students would not want to continue 
watching the video after starting it. I do not think that the presenter put 
enough effort into making this video. Its content is accurate however.
Rating (0.5 star): Watching this video is practically the same as reading the 
textbook. There could have been so much more effort put into making this video. 
It is not very beneficial for students.
