To clarify, I did not expect to learn evv from the video you provided.
However, I did expect to learn things proportionally to the video
length. That way, the video efficiency is pretty low. The video itself
can certainly be improved - the problem is not with eev itself, but
rather with the way you present things.

Note that eev is not actually very alien. Knowing the concept of Org
links, eev is pretty trivial. At least the basics concepts are not hard
to grasp.

It would be interesting to hear about the outcome and the student
