    Great animations, although i didn’t like how the audio was only coming out of my left speaker.

  2. David says:

    The video had good visuals and information. One weird thing is that audio only came out on my left side which was really strange.

  3. Andrew says:

    Good, effective animations.

  4. Dorothea says:

    Your visuals were all drawn out very neatly and helped with my understanding of the content

  5. Alyssa says:

    The visuals were perfect: they were extremely helpful (& neat!) in presenting your information. However, I felt that the video didn’t really tie the content back to what we’ve learned in class and that it didn’t explain the experiment as thoroughly as it should have been. Also, I would have liked to see more explanation of the figure as well.

  6. Savannah says:

    I enjoyed how well this video was linked to the, very neat and descriptive, animation of the talking. Although the research was explained very well it lacked the connection to our course.

  7. Kaitlin says:

    The visuals were great, and I really like the flow of the video. The narrator’s voice was very clear, and she was very confident in what she was speaking on. However, I was moderately confused on the connection between the study and our course material. If there was a larger connection, it would have been a 5/5 video. Other than that, great job!

  8. Rahulkrishna says:

    First of all, as a calligrapher, I really appreciated the handwriting/font used at the beginning of the video. Secondly, the video was really informative, pace was nice, and the visuals/animations were really engaging

  9. Madison says:

    Clear, easy to understand, and very visually engaging! Whoever drew these pictures, you’re awesome!!! Didn’t really have a clear tie-back to class info, though.

  10. Maxwell says:

    The video was very easy to understand and I think that the drawings on screen were very clear and concise

  11. Samantha says:

    The animations and voice over was great. It was very informative and clear.

  12. Tarab says:

    This video reminded me of Khan Academy! Info was well presented and the visuals were superb.

  13. Sophia says:

    Fantastic pacing, and the dynamic drawings and visuals really added a lot to the video. I thought the video connected quite well to Module 1 and some to Module 2. Audio was only in my left ear but it was very clear.

  14. Ashmita says:

    My group did the same topic and it was interesting how you guys did your presentation!

  15. Ashna says:

    The information was illustrated and explained very well!

  16. Nidhi says:

    I love these visuals! They made the material easier to understand 🙂

  17. Nicholas says:

    The drawings and animation were done very nicely and the information from the paper was explained very well. However, the audio only cam from one headphone speaker, which was a bit distracting, and there was no connection back to how it relates to the course.

  18. Elizabeth says:

    I liked how it was drawn out while being filmed, very cool

  19. Joselyn says:

    I enjoyed the consistency throughout the video and the pacing was perfect!

  20. Kristine says:

    The visuals were so good and matched up perfectly with the voiceover. I wish I could draw that well! I do wish there was more of a connection to what we learned in class and I also wish the detailed figure was described more.

  21. Lisa says:

    The visuals were amazing and the figures drawn were very detailed; It made the information explained easy to follow. It was cool that the drawings were filmed in one take, must have taken a lot of planning and practice. Great work!

  22. Daham says:

    It was easy to understand with the visualization. Time was well managed. Well done!

  23. Yanghang says:

    The visual is neat and the voice is clear. And the drawings are really good.

  24. Berna says:

    Visuals are great and make it easy to understand. There was no rushing and was easy to hear except for sound only coming from one speaker.

  25. Alianna says:

    The drawings really added to the video and made it easier to understand. The voice was clear and I liked how you explained the concept

  26. Robert says:

    There was never a slow moment with this video; the time was all used to explain the experiment. However, how did this experiment show that human activity can change rates of evolution? That was thrown in at the end and I didn’t remember hearing about that in the video.

  27. Kendall says:

    The drawings helped me follow along, and the idea of clocks versus rocks was very interesting to me. I am confused about why there was only one voice the whole time though.

  28. Sho says:

    The drawings were done really well, but I wish that it was tied back to the class a little more.

  29. Griffin says:

    Good visuals and presentation of information, but the visuals went by a little fast. I didn’t have time to really look at what was happening on screen.

  30. Sho says:

    The information was well illustrated and explained. Good job guys!

  31. Amiel says:

    I thought this video was great! Perfect visuals and clear explanations/audio.

  32. David says:

    I thought the stop motion was well done, and it provided nice visuals so that the information was easy to follow. Great job!

  33. James says:

    I love the minute physics like approach to presenting the paper.

  34. Samantha says:

    I absolutely love the visuals of the video. They make things easy to follow and visually pleasing. Also love the way y’all connected it to a bigger application outside of the main ideas of the article.

  35. Zhubo says:

    Great video! The real-time drawings make the video engaging and easy to follow!

  36. Brooklyn says:

    The audio and visuals from this video were fantastic! They both clearly communicated the concepts from the article in great depth. The concepts connecting this to the class could have been more clearly stated using phrases like “module 1” or “our evolution unit,” but otherwise the video was clear and concise.

  37. Kelly says:

    The video is visually entertaining, but I lost interest due to length and the tone of the narrator.

  38. Graeme says:

    Great presentation! Your voice was so clear, so it was easy to understand.

  39. Tyler says:

    Very creative and easy to understand the video.

  40. Kara says:

    The visuals of this video complement the topic perfectly, they are also wonderfully timed with the audio.

  41. Eric says:

    I like how the picture is continuously drawn out as the information is explained. It flows very well which helps to understand the information.

  42. Katherine says:

    Excellent visuals!!!

  43. Inhee says:

    The information was well presented with great visuals!

  44. Vamsish says:

    I thought the animations and the drawings were very cool and made the video more entertaining to watch. Also, the information was presented very well.

  45. Bradford says:

    I really liked the animations in this one.
