I really appreciated how you navigated the site and showed exactly how it works and the different ways users can utilize it. It was also really neat how you showed the different type of people who use twitter like the President, entertainers, and professors. I felt the music in the background was a bit slow and sort of distracting. Additionally the only other thing I would work on would be to figure out how to transition your takes a bit smoother because at times it seemed the speaker was cut off quickly.
I like that you used a movie clip to support the uses of Twitter. I like the music as well as the narration. The two things that i would suggest is refrain from adding negative comments about using Twitter, because it demotes the educational value of it. Also, lowering the volume of the microphone so that it won't be so loud. Other than that, good job!
I like how you used a movie clip of a high school to compare Twitter uses. Also calling Twitter a "virtual water cooler". You did a great job of keeping the narration enthusiastic. The only thing I would change is the voice volume. It seemed like you were too close to the mic when speaking, but it was still enthusiastic. You could have also done some retakes to keep a better flow with the narration, especially between (2:00-2:30). Good video!
The visual content of this video was very well done. I enjoyed the transitions and video images. This video was organized in a way that was very easy to understand. The voice of the second speaker seems to have recorded at much louder volume than the first. Adjusting this discrepancy would improve the quality of this video. I also thought the opening of the video could have been a bit flashier, to grab the viewers attention.
I think they did a really great job with their screen casting it was really clear. They also did a great job of integrating music in a way that did not overshadow the voice overs. They added a bit of humor to explain twitter which I thought was also neat. I thought the second voice over was bit loud and had a few problems with overlap. I think I also would have added more ways to use it in the classroom.
I thought you did an amazing job! I really loved that you used music throughout the video; it gave it extra flair and kept my attention. I also liked that you used a pen-shaped cursor. Sometimes it's difficult to see the white arrow, but your cursor was very clear. I also loved the "Mean Girls" clip!
I thought you transitions could have been improved. The music stopped and started in different places and that was a bit awkward. I also though you could have used more graphics and pictures to add more dimension to the video, as most of it was screen casting.
I enjoyed this video because I am just starting to learn about twitter and it helped me learn more. The comparison of twitter to a high school cafeteria was great! The audio was a little scratchy at times though. I also wanted to hear more examples of using twitter in the classroom since it is so celebrity- and news-based right now.
I really like the enthusiasm in your voices during the video. It definitely showed that you were passionate about it. Also I like you "Where Twitter Is Going Section." I think you touched on some great points The voice overs were a little fuzzy at times, and I think the sound volume was a little inconsistent at certain times. Also I wasn't sure about putting negative aspects about Twitter in this video.
I like how it talks about connecting with friends or strangers, following people you might find of interest. I also like how you can access it on your phone or computer. Some flubs I noticed were that the audio overlaps a little bit a few times. I wanted to know more about how Twitter can be used in the classroom.
I really enjoyed the Mean Girls video and your cute Twitter status's. They made your video a little fun and interesting. I did not really like how you guys both talked. One of you talked way louder than the other and it made me not want to really listen. I also thought some of your instruction was a little repetitive. I loved your usage in a classroom explanation. I never thought that a teacher could tweet their students about classtimes and other class subjects.
I really like how you used the video from Mean Girls to show how Twitter has different cliches. Another thing I liked was the music in the background; it was very relaxing and went along well with the video. In terms of revision, the voices and music broke up at times throughout the video which threw me off a little. Also, I feel like it would have been useful to mabye use some examples of how teachers are using it in the classroom.
This was a neat tutorial and it flowed nicely. It covered many bases that involve Twitter and made it accessible to the audience. I liked the script that was used and it was nice to actually show how Twitter is used on a daily basis.
A few points in the film that could have been approved was the sound quality because it seemed that it was breaking up at some times during the video and it could have had a greater emphasis on the use of Twitter in the classroom. Twitter still seems more like a social tool rather than an educational tool.
I liked the overall explanation of the website. You made it very clear and to the point. I also like that you looked at twitter from an educational standpoint because it could be useful if individual's learn how to properly incorporate it.
However, you made a lot of negative points which make it seem meaningless in the education. For example, the fact that it's creepy or it waste a lot of time with stupid interaction.
Your explanation of what twitter is was very clear and I have a greater understanding of what it's used for. I like how you added value to it by integrating its use through mobile devices.
Mentioning how it was creepy may not have been the greatest way to prove to educational institutions of why to use it, but it's good to note. There were some odd voice breaks in a few places.
I found it really amusing that this video compared twitter to social life in high school because online social media is extremely close to that. I also liked the informal "lingo" used because it made it easier to relate. My only thoughts would be to have the voice overs consistence in sound and a "peppier" music selection.
i liked the enthusiasm of the narration, and the music in the background. i learned a lot about twitter, the only thing i would suggest is to make the sound a little lower or to speak at a distance from the microphone. but the sound quality was still loud and clear! overall a good video!
