  1. Black Natalie says:

    Firstly, I like the Harry Potter font. I actually really like watching the drawing on the computer. Fairly simple figure (1). I like how you focus on certain peaks in the second scientific figure. Clear connections to evolution topics from our course and origin in life (module 3 and 4). The group clearly new the purpose and thesis of the research paper, and address the open-endedness of this topic, calling for more research to be done. Informative an entertaining video.

  2. Mavris Sophia says:

    The graphics in this video are really well drawn, and because of this I makes the video more visually interesting. One thing is maybe to zoom in on the video so the viewers cannot see all the editing done in the frame. Other than that it was really good, especially how the speaker was informative and clear.

  3. Carroll Sally says:

    This video was so well done! It was very educational, and it felt like I was watching a video made by the researchers themselves! I love all of the tie-ins to all that we have studied thus far in Biology 1510. Job well done!

  4. Kern Ryan says:

    This video was so well done It was very interesting, I felt like I was watching a video. I hate all of the blatant tie-ins to what we have studied so far in Biology 1510, what do you think i’m an idiot.
    Anyway this research is crazy.

  5. Stubbs Isabella says:

    The computer drawn animations were a perfect fit for conveying the experiment. The control and neat handwriting was quite impressive! The narrator does a great job sounding engaged while explaining the experiment. I liked the direct tie-in to Module 3 as well- it helped make clear the relationship.

  6. Barone Cassandra says:

    The animations for the video were very effective and not too distracting. The overall layout was to the point and engaging. Very good use of tying the info to class topics!

  7. Elisabet Ruiz-Torres says:

    The animations were easy to follow and helped in understanding the information given. There was also clear connections to information we learned in class in earlier modules. However, the speaker could have been a bit louder to be easily understood.

  8. Schulz Laura says:

    Harry Potter font was awesome! The video was very informative and an appropriate amount of background information was provided, so that an audience who didn’t know much about the topic could still understand the content being given in the video. Nice job! My one critique is that I would add some background music – it makes the video more upbeat!

  9. Andrew Matson says:

    I really enjoyed the Harry Potter font at the beginning of the video. The computer drawing was also very entertaining, and this is obviously a very interesting topic! Great job on the video!

  10. Vacko Katharine says:

    I found this video to be very engaging. The speaker was easily understood and concise. I also appreciated how they drew the images using a computer, I thought this was really unique. They also stressed WHY the experiment mattered which was important.

  11. Su Steven says:

    Really good visuals. Connected back to the modules very clearly. Had a really good flow and funny visuals to go with. I think the figure (regarding the rocks samples) wasn’t really useful.

  12. Adithi Anil says:

    I liked the visuals because they were engaging and enjoyable to watch while staying connected to the topic. The audio was also easy to listen to and understand. The topic was covered well and easy to understand.

  13. Moye Lauren says:

    This was a really cool, interesting way of presenting this information! Very clearly presented, well done!

  14. Koo Jun says:

    Very good video. I liked the open ended nature of your conclusion. Also, I liked how you gave some context before jumping into your topic and I also liked how seamlessly you integrated the requirement to link the biology modules into the topic of your video.

  15. Bakare Oladipo says:

    The font at the beginning made me unsure of what to expect, but it turned out to be a further study into what we already discussed in class, evidence of how life began based on stromatolites. Great video overall!

  16. Xie Jingwei says:

    Love the Harry Potter font and the drawings! Your demonstration of the study is very well explained and easy to understand. Awesome job!

  17. Phillips Haley says:

    I thought the video was very interesting and loved the use of Harry Potter. I also thought the visuals were new and creative and different from the things I’ve seen in other videos. The video was also interesting due to the visuals and good narration.

  21. Satapathy Aparajita says:

    Loved the theme of your video because it was a very interesting way to present the content. It was also very clear and informative. Good job!

  22. Qin Nina says:

    This is my own fault, but I thought the Harry Potter themed introduction would carry over :(. I liked everything about the video though. It was evident that the drawings for every point of information was well planned out. Could totally use this to study during finals week.

  23. Kaparos Efiyenia says:

    The content in your video was very thorough and well-explained! One small detail that was slightly distracting was the paint tool box that kept popping up on the bottom right corner after every image was drawn. Otherwise, your visuals were very helpful.

  24. Zibitt Meira says:

    I liked that the presentation of the information was different from other videos. The speaker was easy to understand. Good job!

  25. Delgrego Megan says:

    Very nice video. The speaker spoke at a nice pace, making everything easy to comprehend. The visuals were effective and helped me understand the topic even better. I also like how you related things back to what we learned.

  26. Patel Tilak says:

    The video was very informative and intriguing. The visuals were used well and helped me understand your topic in more depth. One important thing that you did was that you related the video back to what we learned in class.

  27. Meyer Alexander says:

    The screenshot of the entire screen was slightly distracting, but otherwise the narrator was very well spoken and the drawings were very illustrative. The information in the video was clear and engaged the viewers interest. Overall very well done video.

  28. Grande Guillermo says:

    This video was very professionally done. The study was presented in a very structured, clear and engaging manner. The computer made visuals were excellent and complemented the narration very well. The narrator was energetic and engaging. The video was very educational overall, and ties in the concepts we studied in BIO 1510 very well. Great job!

  29. Warren Tyler says:

    This was one of the best videos I’ve seen. I like the style used. The commentary was clear and well done. Concepts from earlier in the course were neatly tied in. After watching this video I felt like I understood the basics of this subject very clearly.

  30. Watson Kimberly says:

    Really cool video. I liked the editing; I haven’t seen any other video that presented their topic this way. Presented your topic in a very interesting way that made it engaging and intriguing!

  31. O'brien-Russell Charlotte says:

    The connections between to the course were very clear. Overall, the drawings were very informative and well done. However, sometimes the video was hard to follow and the experiment was not explained very well.

  32. Jacqueline says:

    Using software for the drawing was a nice touch, and the synchronization between it and the audio was well done. The speaker spoke at a good pace and his expressiveness made me take interest in the science. I enjoyed the deliberate ties to the course through the mention of specific modules and definitions.

  33. Lever Alice says:

    The drawings were very clear and the speaker spoke at the perfect tempo; they were very easy to understand. Also the video did a good job of tying the study back to previous modules for review.

  34. Dubey Shresttha says:

    The way that you guys drew connections to the concepts that we already learned in the beginning of the video, was different but allowed me to relate to the video in a way that I haven’t been able to with most other videos.

  35. Megan says:

    Very engaging video! The drawings were cute, and the information was presented very clearly. I feel as though I really understand the findings of the experiment. Nice, clean design, and solid scientific support.

  36. Born Adam says:

    I really like the digital drawing style. I haven’t seen this style before and it was very engaging. However, it could have used a little bit of fine tuning. The taskbar was partially showing at the bottom and made it seem a less polished. The video quality was also a little bit low, but this might be unavoidable. Aside from these drawbacks, the video the cleanly delivered the content in the paper and was very engaging.

  37. Hoey Maeve says:

    Really awesome drawings! Made the topics a lot easier to understand and a lot easier to follow along with what you saying throughout the video. Great presentation of the material!

  70. Okudoh Victoria says:

    This video is very interesting, though I thought the visuals could be better. The explanations are very well detailed and I was totally engaged the entire time.

  71. Diaz Noah says:

    I liked seeing more Stromatolites. We brushed over them in class but I didnt know t

  72. Chen Morissa says:

    This video had very good production quality. Although the visuals were simple they were a great addition to the information you presented. This video related to what we learned in class much better than most of the other videos.

  73. Tokos Margaret says:

    The one thing I didn’t like was the drawing application they used. It was a little distracting to me with the tool bar and color pallet popping up. Pretty fascinating topic that the narrator explained very well with the aid of clear, simple, colorful drawings.
