"The theatrics of the presentation served to maintain viewer attention – very well done. Creative and humorous, lots of first person narration to guide the action and content of the video. Information was presented in definition form with…"
"Your video is done well technically, sound and visuals. The idea of speed is central to your presentation. As a viewer, I did not see how you were supporting the speed aspect of MOOCs. In what way is learning faster, for example? What part of MOOCs…"
"You clearly have supported the title of this presentation in defining and giving examples throughout. Your speaking voice was clear and the pace of the video was slow but effective for your intended message. Good citations for all materials used.…"
"Very good at pointing out positives and negative aspects; didn’t automatically assume that MOOCs were an educational innovation. You pointed out that you see potential in this online learning format. Credits? "
"Your use of a Prezi set to music brings forth lots of basic facts about MOOCs including choice, working in your own environment, customizing backgrounds, adding a photo, and participating when you want. A viewer might want to know about the…"
"You have good production quality and audio – nicely done technically. You portray MOOCs as fun and something that will make classes less boring, bit the viewer doesn’t really see any evidence of your assertion. What makes a MOOC more fun…"
"Your tone of the video is a positive one, that technology is indeed changing lives in good ways. Freedom is certainly a feature of MOOCs since most of the activity is done on a student’s own time (but there are deadlines in MOOCs). Is the…"
"Thanks for the effort on this. I was wondering if you distinguish between online classes and MOOCs? Are they the same thing? You used the word interactive in regard to MOOCs, so the viewer might want an explanation of this – would…"
"Your video has the basics of Google Glass wearable technology, but it also has more. You bring up the important points of privacy and distraction in school. As you asked: “Do people want to be in a video?” Are you invading their…"
"Good production quality, voices changing quickly was very effective. Final narrator clarifies the ideas well, but his head is cut off in the frame. Did you want to share more references as well as Bill Gates?"
"Very good opening scene – invites the viewer to wonder what will happen next. Using speed as your focus, you do a good job of supporting this idea with your human examples and your technology references. Viewers might like to see a specific…"
"By using live video, stock photos, and direct explanation, you have created a very informative presentation. You main idea is clearly supported – that people can collaborate and perform other daily functions while still implementing a wearable…"
Terry, I just want you to notice what you've done with the judging. The fact you leave comments on these student videos gives very important feedback. It tells the students that people notice. I helps them know that what they do matter. Well, Terry, you matter. What you're doing matters very much, thank you. You are doing a great job judging!
