I thought the “Hardy-Wienberg Equilibrium Smashdown” was really easy to grasp and was well done! We had done something very similar in class with Dr. Spencer and you guys did an excellent job of replicating that idea to make it easily understandable. The only thing that I would suggest would be to make your snail example more clear. I sometimes got lost during the examples and had to rewind in order to understand how the example relates to the Hardy-Weinberg Principle.
The ending to the video was great with everyone playing cards and explaining the Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium, but I wish you would have started the video by explaining what you were talking about before you went into the snail part.
The thing I liked about this video was that actual people were in it and it was very creative. However, it was thoroughly confusing, I couldn’t hear people speaking very well, and I think a student would be more confused after watching this video if they didn’t understand the Hardy-Weinberg principle. To make this video better, I think periodic visuals (some sort of graphs) of what was going on would have made everything clearer.
I think the idea behind the video was good but not executed as well as it could have been. The overall premise was confusing and not explained to the point that someone who didn’t understand Hardy-Weinberg could grasp the concept easily after watching the video.
I thought it was a creative approach, to the video. I didn’t really understand the card game at the end, I’m also not entirely sure what the first part contributed to the video. Perhaps spend the whole time with the game and a more detailed explanation of what is going on and what everything represents.
The video and script is good. Sound quality of the dialogue can be better.
I thought this video was very creative and interesting! However, an improvement that could be made to this video is adding in more specific information about the Hardy-Weinberg Principle. What is the formula that is needed to understand this concept?
The script was interesting and different, and related the concepts from class. However, it was sometimes hard to follow, especially since the sound wasn’t clear.
I liked how you tied in what we had done in class to practice the concepts of Hardy Weinberg with the cards. I thought the overall story concept was creative, but it might be more informative to connect the story to specific Hardy Weinberg principles and concepts at the end.
I thought the video was pretty well done, but it would have been better if the people spoke a bit louder in it. I had a hard time hearing them and had to turn the volume all the way up.
Overall I thought it was good but reminded me a lot of class activities so I don’t know how much original thought went into this. I did like the visuals but the audio was a little hard to hear at parts because of background noise/music.
The video has good content and potential but I could barely hear anything that was being said during the video. Additionally using the same actors for each generation made the content confusing to follow.
I like the idea of the video and some parts were really creative such as the card part. Although it was a little confusing after re-watching it, I was able to understand it clearly. One suggestion would be to have a better introduction so that the flow of the video could be better but overall it was a fun and engaging video.
I liked the basic premise for the video, but the execution was somewhat poor. The sound quality was less than stellar, and while the video did use a decent example (the snail population) I thought that it needed a little more explanation as to why the changes mentioned were occurring, and how. In addition, I would have liked a few more visuals, perhaps overlays on the video itself, but that last one may be more of a personal opinion. Aside from these criticisms, I thought that the video did convey the basic premises of the Hardy-Weinberg Principle well, though I’m not sure if it could have taught the principle to someone ignorant on the subject.
Very creative way to display the information, however explanations and examples could be made more clear conceptually.
I liked the approach to this topic, but it wasn’t done as well as it could have been. The card game was creative and a little helpful but mostly confusing. The sound quality was also pretty poor. It was a good idea though!
the idea of video is good, but honestly, it is hard to understand the main topic. I think add caption or visual things will solve that problems.
The topic of this video is interesting and I know it would be hard to record with good quality. The video was okay, but the sound is a bit hard to listen.
This is a great topic and video approach to explain it but it was a little confusing trying to follow the video, it may have been helpful to explain the topic first and then go into the video.
The ending to the video was great with everyone playing cards and explaining the Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium. I also thought it was very entertaining and I appreciate the time put in to record actual acting in a project.
