I really enjoyed the video and thought it was very informative; I just wish there would have been background music. I use Skype and learned more features about it then I had before. A good example was your use of it for screen sharing, which is very helpful for group projects.
I thought this video was extremely organized and very well presented. I feel like I know so much more about Skype now and could see how well it could be used as a learning tool. The only thing I would change would be to add better background music (personal preference)!
I think this video was very well put together. It was easy to understand and follow and you guys did a good job explaining what skype is. If there was one thing I would say to change about the video, it would be the amount you incorporated learning into it. Although you did mention it towards the end, you guys should of talked more about the relation between skype and learning in the first half. Other than that, good job!
This video was very well put together and provided ample amounts of information. I liked how well it flowed and I feel like you really took the time to research all of the aspects of Skype and what it can do. The thing that I would have changed is at the beginning when you mentioned that there were 7 new things to learn about skype, it would have been nice for them to have been numbered.
I think the way you split up each question was perfect and kept the viewer on track so that I didn't get lost thinking "which question are we on now?" I even learned alot more about skype myself. nice job!
I thought you guys did a great job! I liked that the pictures paired up with what you were saying at the time. Furthermore, I liked that you separated each question and were clear about what you were answering while still having it flow.
You two did an awesome job at giving a simple explanation of Skype. I think that you guys had some really good visuals and had really good transitions. I thought that your descriptions were very helpful and really informative. You described everything well and had good visuals to correspond to what you were saying.
This video did a great job simplifying and explaining Skype! I think the graphics and effects used were applicable and enhancing to the video, and each description was clear and made the technology easily understandable. I think the only things I might have done differently would be incorporate some background music, and maybe touch a bit on how it can be used to video conference internationally to learn about world cultures or something like that, that demonstrates what a unique tool Skype can be in the classroom.
I really like your video, all of the images grabbed my attention and you spoke very clearly and smoothly along with the images, making the information easy to understand. The only thing that you could do to improve it is to add some background music and add more examples of how it could be used in the classroom.
I really liked your video and thought it was very informative! It grabbed the attention of the viewer and informed them thoroughly about Skype. The only thing that could have been done differently is that there could have been more about specific uses in the classroom/ how it would fit into a lesson plan, etc.
This video was great! I really liked how the voice overs were timed extremely well with the pictures of the video. I also enjoyed learning about how skype is used in the classroom because I was unaware that it was being used as a teaching technology. One thing to improve on could be to add background music. Overall this was a really strong video!
The content of this video was very thorough and you provided several practical examples of how skype can be used in a learning environment. I thought the narration was at a good pace, transitions flowed well, and the visuals were in line with what was being said. The only things I might have done differently would be to add in some music for entertainment and maybe included a video clip of skype being used in a classroom.
