  1. Whitehead Jarah says:

    Awesome job! I really like how you guys made this video relatable (e.g. eating pizza at 2 am). The drawings were also really cute.

  2. Calhoun Ciandra says:

    The illustrations definitely made the video for me. The video as a whole was very informative and with the compilation of voiceover and images, I was able to easily comprehend the big idea and the experiment that was conducted. The images not only correlated with what was being said, but they also helped with comprehension of technical terms related to Irisin impact on Browning and Adipogenesis.

  3. Elisabet Ruiz-Torres says:

    The speaker of the video is clearly understood. The illustrations of the video were directly correlated to what was being said; thus, making the information more clearly understood. I was able to follow the research conducted and the big picture of the experiment.

  4. Nava Eduardo says:

    I loved the markers you guys used!

  9. Koo Jun says:

    Great video! The pacing is great and the drawings are synced to your explanations which made easier to understand what was being said. Does this mean that if your inject irisin before working out, you’ll be able to burn a lot more fat cells than if you hadn’t?

  10. Bakare Oladipo says:

    The “live” drawing of the images made the video captivating. The narrator’s voice was clear and easy to follow. Good job!

    The drawings are fun and informative! The way the topic is explained is very easy to understand and relatable and I really appreciate how you relate it back to the course topics at the end.

  12. Harris Sarah says:

    I thought it was done very well and it definitely looked like a lot of effort was put into it! My only critique is that i wished you paused on the figures longer so that I could really look at them and understand what they were showing. But i feel that you all did a really good job of explaining the experiment in a way that is easier to understand. The pictures were also very cute! Great job!

  13. Anum Ul-Haque says:

    Great video, nice figures! Everything is really clear and easy to follow. I think you guys did a great job!

  22. Grande Guillermo says:

    The narrator of the video was very clear and conveyed the information in an effective manner. The illustrations were also great and well timed with the narration, making it easier to digest the information as a whole. If I could change anything in the video, it would be to stabalize the camera shot a bit more, as the movement of the frames was a bit distracting a times. Great job overall!

  23. Warren Tyler says:

    Excellent job with this video! The drawings were well done and helped convey the information. The connections to material covered in class were strong. Good connections to real world applications. The narration was clear, but very fast. I had trouble keeping up with everything being said. Regardless, plenty of info was conveyed by this video. Good job!

  24. Ferguson David says:

    The video was very informative and enjoyable. The overall conceptual and methodical aspects were explained adequately through the use of the drawings. The research methods and results were presented well.

  25. Mohammad Awan says:

    The video was nice. I liked the simpler explanations that were provided and how the video was overall quite engaging. I think overall It was nice, and maybe improve the aesthetics a little. Good Job.

  26. Kim Samuel says:

    I really liked your use of the beginning of the video to explain concepts important to understanding the experiment itself. The presentation of the information was easily understandable, and the figures were extremely well drawn. The small shakiness of the video didn’t detract at all from the overall quality.

  27. Newville Grace says:

    Best video I’ve watched thus far! Not only was the speaker engaging, but the visual aspects were perfect for depicting the information. This topic contains a lot of confusing words, but the speaker made sure to define any new words that were going to be talked about which made it way easier to follow along.

  28. Punyarthi Sayali says:

    Relates it back to college students well. The conclusion helped bring everything together and explained the importance well.

  31. Taylor Sydney says:

    Your background information was detailed enough to make the information easy to understand. Your explanations were thorough and well-worded. Good job!

  32. Reynolds Kirsten says:

    The script and voiceover was informative as well as relatable! The information was presented in a clear and concise manner, and the drawings only helped! (Also, the analysis of the data and the concept of “western blotting” were very interesting!) I also appreciated the direct reference to previous modules covered in this course. The figures and results were clear, and the video was interesting and informative overall. I can easily see this video being used as an example in the future. 10/10, and well done!

  33. Arpinar Omer says:

    The drawings were very easy to understand and were related to the topics being explained. The ideas behind the experiment were easily understood. Great video!!

    My group also did this topic so it was interesting to see how you guys presented the material. The visuals were clear and easy to follow. And you also explained the topic well which I know is hard to do with this article. Good Job!

  36. Anderson Eric says:

    The drawings were very well done. They were also interesting, relevant, and helpful in explaining the ideas. The script was slow enough were I could keep up with understanding the topics, and showed how the findings were relevant to me personally. Cool!

  37. Umair Alvi says:

    The visuals made your video entertaining without distracting from the information which I really appreciate. However, I do wish you guys would have come up with an original and creative to tackle the video!

    Interesting video; as someone with weight issues, I hope this research starts producing results soon! However, in regards to the video’s quality, the camera shake could make some viewers nauseous.

  44. Mount Conner says:

    A great video! My only issue was that the camera shaking was distracting, but the explanation was very clear and the drawings were fantastic! Good job!

  45. Kayastha Ayush says:

    This video caught my attention because it’s always nice to know more about how to burn calories. The narration was spot on with clarity and pace.

  59. Dunford Eden says:

    Your video was engaging and incorporated several things from past modules. Very clean presentation of the information and drawing it out made it more interesting. You seemed to put a lot of effort into the video. I do wish it could have been a little slower but it all made sense.

    I like how the video was relatable! It made understanding the results of the experiment a little easier and made the video fun to watch!

  61. Jackson Kierston says:

    Great job on linking your graphics to the information that you were talking about. It also was a great idea to include a link to college students and how this information applies to us. It helps us stay engaged in what you are speaking on so great idea! The graphics were very clean as well as great voice overs!

  62. Berlinghoff Adam says:

    I don’t think the cheering/music thing at the beginning was necessary. But other than that the information was presented very well in a way that was easy to understand. The animations were good and the narrators spoke clearly.
