This is a fantastic resource. I love how the content can be viewed at three different levels of complexity (beginner, intermediate, advanced).  The images at each level are different, so there is a really cool potential for instructors to scaffold content acqusition for cater to individual student needs.  The writing is very clear and the visuals are excellent.  Love it!
