    I like how you guys drew out a map of the world to communicate your topic. Also, I enjoyed how you guys incorporated the concepts that were learned in class (e.g. gene flow).

  2. Kern Ryan says:

    This is crazy i would haven ever thought that this could be true, that is incredible.

  3. Sheng Erika says:

    I really liked the drawings and it matched the explanations really well. The drawings were very neat and distinct, so it was really easy to grasp the information. The information was really easy to understand thanks to your drawings and explanations.

  4. Calhoun Ciandra says:

    The hand drawn map and images were my favorite part of this video. I enjoyed how each stage and concept of the genomic history of Aboriginal Australians were broken down step by step. The video was detail oriented in both the illustrations, and the information present within the voiceovers.

  5. Vacko Katharine says:

    I really enjoyed this video! The drawings were so well done and the concepts were well explained. The only complaint I have was that the camera was a little shaky at times and distracted from the over all video.

  6. Murray Hannah says:

    This is so interesting! I loved the graphics and the person drawing all the images did a great job and has very legible handwriting. I especially loved all the maps. However, I did have a hard time reading all the pie charts on the one map of Australia starting around time 1:24. In addition, the speed and quality of the speech were perfect.

  7. Bakare Oladipo says:

    I enjoyed the video because it broke down some part of the human history, mostly things I hardly knew about. The figures and data presented further helped in understanding the topic. Great job!

  8. Xie Jingwei says:

    This is a very interesting study and your map drawings really helped me visualize the concepts! Great job!

  9. Phillips Haley says:

    I really enjoyed this video and how it discussed things not necessarily related to the DNA, like the language. This was a very interesting and informative video and I really enjoyed the topic. The visuals were also great and I loved the way the figures were presented over the map.

  10. Filmer Andres says:

    The drawings were very well done and helped portray the studies result. The narrators spoke well and made the information easy to understand. Just maybe something other than the map would make it more interesting.

  11. Bentata Benezry says:

    Amazing drawings.They really help to understand the research and the explanations match perfectly with each drawing. I really enjoyed the video.

  12. Patel Amy says:

    Wow did you guys write on a table?? These drawings are impressive! The information was presented very clearly, and I could actually relate because it tied into material from lecture.

  13. Kaparos Efiyenia says:

    The visuals in your video were very well drawn and clear enough for viewers to understand the content.

  14. Loftin Sidney says:

    This video was really great and interesting to watch. Great incorporation with topics discussed in class.

  15. Zibitt Meira says:

    The narrator was easy to understand and the speed of the information was easy to understand. Good job!

  16. Muenchen Alexandrea says:

    The hand drawn map was such a good idea and my favorite part of the views broken down into steps. Your attention to detail in the animations and information was presented well and made it easy to follow. Great job!

  17. Jacqueline says:

    This video was really easy to follow and the drawings were great and synced well the audio. I can’t believe you were able to draw Australia so well in one go! The only thing that confused me was when you started writing the three-letter codes, but eventually I got that they were the different tribes.

  18. Megan says:

    Good job presenting the narration with the visuals to create a clear, cohesive argument. It might have been made clearer what the three letter abbreviations symbolized, but other than that, I felt that I understood the study pretty well. Good job!

  19. Lucas Council says:

    5 stars. Awesome video and great map of Australia. Y’all made the experiment seem very simple. One critique: There wasn’t much mention of other modules’ implications for the experiment being discussed.

  20. Washburn Benjamin says:

    I liked the use of the map. Good drawings and they matched well with the narration. Informative and easy to follow video.

  21. Hoey Maeve says:

    Great quality of drawings and video. Visuals in the beginning were also creative and entertaining. The information being discussed was also clear and easy to understand. Video did a great job of explaining the topics.

  22. Tordoya Henckell says:

    The map was very helpful and the visuals were really informative overall. You explained the concepts in a very clear and interesting way. Great job!

  23. Oliver Greta says:

    I really liked how this material was presented and think the information presented was very clear and interesting.

  24. Taylor Sydney says:

    The animations were really nice and the map and phylogenetic tree were extremely helpful in digesting the information. Great job!

  25. Noah Rittenberg says:

    Information was conveyed very clearly, and the drawings were great! The camera was a little shaky at times, but other than that, great video! Really interesting information too.

  26. Bhayana Shivika says:

    I learned about this topic in world history in high school so it was cool to learn about it more in depth and relate it to bio class. The visuals were average; I liked the world map. Overall it was a good video.

  27. Anderson Eric says:

    The drawings were well done and informative. The narration was clear and in understandable terms. I do wonder at a few mentions though, that seem to contradict. Were the aborigines the first humans in Australia, or did their genes and culture just have a major impact on people already there?

  28. Umair Alvi says:

    The hand drawing of the routes of human travel and genomic changes throughout time were very nice! I never thought of the hypothesis mentioned in this video, and I was intrigued to learn more!

  29. Green Madison says:

    I loved this video! I thought the topic was so interesting and the video portrayed it super well. I loved the drawings and the map, and I was very impressed with how well the visuals and audio went together.

  30. McKean Thomas says:

    I enjoyed this video because it talked about what is to me one of the more interesting concepts of biology, and the project was well made to boot. Good work!

  31. Leal Antonio says:

    The images were very practical and helpful. The results and explanations of the experiment was portrayed very clearly, the sound quality was great and the videos pace consistent and easy to follow.

  32. Mount Conner says:

    Good images, and the content of the video was very interesting. Great job!

  33. Cho Soo says:

    This video is interesting because the topic is closely related to what we’ve learned in class such as gene flow. So I can understand the concept easily and visualize on my brain.

  34. Quintas Gabriel says:

    This video was great ! The topic was engaging and interesting, the bridges made to connect class concepts and the graphics all made this video super engaging. Really nice!

  35. Kayastha Ayush says:

    I really liked the use of the giant whiteboard table to illustrate the information being presented. The narration was nicely paced and clear. The visuals were spot on. The drawing of Australia and all the routes and etc. were super helpful in keeping up with the information.

  36. Sommer Elias says:

    I find it so amazing that scientists are able to use genome sequencing to compare populations of humans. Thank you for the thorough and understandable explanation.

  37. Bullock Kate says:

    Good job! Your video was very engaging and informative. I enjoyed the use of simple hand drawn visuals to support the information given. I thought the visuals really helped to make the information more understandable.

  38. Irondi Ogechi says:

    I enjoyed this. Since my group did this same topic, it was really neat seeing the contrast in how the information was relayed. The video was extremely informative and you guys did so well in keeping the audience engaged.

  39. Jenkins Alexandria says:

    This video did a great job of explaining your topic. I enjoyed the visuals presented in this video as well as all of the ties back to our evolution module. Great job!

  40. Nagesha Anirudh says:

    I really like the opening with the map of Australia. It gives a good context and background very quickly. This experiment is very interesting and this group was able to break it down and make it easy to understand. Very good video.

  41. Ortega Michelle says:

    I really liked how all of the pictures related to what you guys spoke about. I did not quite understand what all of the abbreviations were, so I do wish you guys would have reviewed what those were. Other than that, you guys did a great job of explaining the experiment and how it was linked to areas all around the world.

  42. Phillips Matthew says:

    I loved the map and how the different percentages of people of Australia were drawn. The rest of the visuals were done very well also. The video was very informative ,and I loved the ending with stars wars music. Your group did a very good job.

  43. Grant says:

    You included some great information and the questions were a good introduction that prepared the viewers for the information. I also enjoyed the visuals. Nice job. Great video.

  44. Swope Jason says:

    Great use of the drawings to help explain your topic while having the good commentary to clearly explain your interesting topic. Overall very good job keeping me engaged while explaining everything.

  45. Wah Katie says:

    YES! i absolutely loved this video. The information was presented in an organized fashion which i thought was very helpful in helping me understand the information.Your attention to detail was impeccable and the information was very clear. The visuals were great as well. In particular, the hand drawn maps were something that I really admired. This is an amazing video and the way it explained the bridges to certain points that we have touched in class is also very good. Great video you guys!

  46. Vezeau Alexandra says:

    This was an interesting topic. I really liked the way pie-charts were used to show the DNA make-up of the different groups of people. I don’t think the last sentence of the video made much sense though. It made it sound like languages were just acquired all at once instead of slow change over thousands of years, with the spread of people. I think it would’ve been better without that last part since the spread of languages had already been explained in the clip before it.

  47. Brockman Christine says:

    Good job! Your video was very informative, and you guys did a good job of clearly explaining the article. The visuals were well drawn and helped strengthen my understanding of the information.

  48. Ferguson David says:

    The overall video was good. The drawing were very descriptive and allowed for the concepts to explained very well. Overall the depictions and use of the cladogram allowed for a good understanding of the concept.

  49. Eling Taylor says:

    The graphics were great and the narrator was very clear and spoke at a good pace!

  50. Diaz Noah says:

    The images were great and showed you all put alot of effort into the video. Also the topic was super interesting and I learned some new things

  51. Moore Collin says:

    Your maps illustrated where the aboriginals came from very well.

  52. Popovici David says:

    You guys must have messed up on those map drawings; maps are always pretty difficult to draw. It looked like you worked hard on your project! Well done!
