Good job guys! I have a twitter account but don't use it so this video was very informative--especially on lingo because most of the time I have no idea what people are saying. I thought it was pretty simplistic and easy to follow. Two suggestions would be to fix the sound and fix some of the images (enlarge them or zoom the screen).
I eally enjoyed the introduction of the video. The introduction of the video caught my attention immediately. Also the video explained Twitter in a way that made it is easy to understand. The video went into great details about the various aspects of Twitter, which was helpful. Something that could be improved is the sound. At some points in the video, it was hard to hear. Also enlarging the screen would also help improve the video.
Your intro was really engaging. I've never used twitter so I learned a lot. I also liked that you went step-by-step through all the parts of making and using Twitter. You guys did a good job showing howit works and whatthe benefits are.
The sound quality was distracting at times, and the voiceover could have been a little tighter. Other than that, good video.
The intro was very catchy and funny. IT drew my attention immediately which is very important in one of these how to use videos. I thought the whole video was very informative and it was easy to follow. I wouldnt change anything about it i really liked it!
I loved the intro..it was funny! I don't own a twitter nor plan to but you guys made it sound quite interesting. Good job of walking through the process of setting one up and even knowing the lingo. The only downside was that the voice sounded like the speakers were off.
The video was very informational and easy to follow. Jeff spoke very clearly and went over important basics. I think its nice how Willard brought in the very important point about bringing in a current event from Twitter and the acessibility of teachers if they started reaching out to students through this medium. The video could be more professional by including more uses for education and the intro could have been more fast-paced.
I thought the opening was really fun, and a good way to catch attention. Also, I really liked the way you went over everything very clearly, which I think is very good for beginners. I've actually never used Twitter, but I feel like I could actually navigate the website after watching your video. The sound quality was not great, which was a little distracting to me. Also, some of the images were blurry, but that's nothing major, and when you were actually using Twitter it was fine. Great job!
That was a great opening...and ending (love that song). I felt like a was watching a video for fun and not for class, definitely a great attention grabber. Also the information that you presented was very helpful, especially since I actually have never used twitter. I feel like this would be a very good video to use to explain twitter to someone who knows nothing about it. (Finally someone correctly explained the hash tag to me. I have had multiple friends fail at explaining it to me in the past). I might suggest that you fix the sound feedback with the voice over as well as the hesitations and voice cut-offs that occurred. I also noticed that some of your images were a little blurry, and you could probably fix that with larger images. Other than that, great video.
I was not sure if we rate our own video guys. I liked how we explained twitter by walking through it for the viewers and I loved the music we used to transition from each topic. I do think our sound could of been improved.
I really liked that you show the viewer how to start and set up their own twitter profile, but the sound is extremely loud! It made me want to press the mute button. You did sucha good job talking about the lingo and styles of posting tweets. I don't have twitter and don't know the lingo, so I thought that was really cool and informative. I thinky uo could have zoomed in a bit, because the text was hard to read.
Nice video! I am not a twitter user, so I found this video to be informative and interesting. I thought you provided a clear description and explanation of twitter and how to use the twitter site. I also really liked the beginning and end of your video. The intro music, the twitter song and the end credits added another dynamic to your video that made it fun to watch. My suggestions to improve your video would be to add some breaks in the website explanation. You explanation on how to use twitter could have been made clearer by including titles for the different sections and features of twitter. Also a few clips could have been rerecorded, but nothing major. Great video!
I'm pretty excited that I now know how to use Twitter! Great video. I really liked your clear explanation of Twitter. It was very understandable and if I ever create a Twitter I could easily reference your video. I loved that you went through some Twitter lingo. Good idea! I also liked your point of using Twitter to introduce and follow current events in the classroom. I think that is a very applicable way to integrate Twitter into the classroom. Just a few points of criticism: I know it has already been mentioned, but the sound quality could be improved just a bit. I was also slightly distracted by some of the pauses when you were talking. Maybe writing out what you what to say would help get rid of some of the pauses. But other than that, I really enjoyed your video and learning about Twitter!
Overall, great job on your video!
Things I liked...
1. You were very clear. You had easy to understand steps. Great job explaining how to use Twitter. You also went into lingo, etc. As a non-Twitter user, you made me understand how Twitter works.
2. I honestly had no idea how you were going to tie Twitter into the classroom, but I thought you did a great job. Learning about politics, or Barack Obama, through Twitter could be really fun for the students! Or at least make them feel more connected to political leaders such as Obama.
1. Some of the images, especially in the beginning, were a little fuzzy. Maybe clearer images would have helped. This wasn't too bad though.
2. The sound was fuzzy, and distracting at times. I also kind of thought the music choice was a little distracting, or felt out of place for the topic.
I appreciate the detailed explanation of Twitter, you guys did great on explaining its features and how to use them for the classroom or for your own use. I liked the intro with its music and clips, as well as the song at the end, I thought it was funny.
My only constructive criticisms are to improve the sound quality by making it clearer, and a better wrap up because I thought there was more to it until the credits came up. Other than that, great video! :)
I appreciated how thorough your explanation of Twitter was; it was detailed enough that I now feel comfortable to navigate it. I also thought your intro was very engaging with your use of music and clips. The sound quality could be improved since at times the voices sound distorted. Also, a few of the screen images at the beginning were hard to read. Good job!
Good job guys! I found your video very informative and I learned a lot about twitter (I have never used it). I have been lost with all the twitter lingo that gets thrown around so your step-by-step explanation of the terms one needs to know will help me out in not seeming like a total behind the times type of dude. I also liked the opening dance party of twitter icons haha.
A couple points of constructive criticism: The sound quality was a little "buzzy" and would have been nicer if it were a clearer recording. Also, some sort of wrap up or conclusion before going to the credits would have been a good idea.
Overall, thanks for the nice video!
I enjoyed watching your video! I thought the introduction was entertaining and engaging with the music and visuals! I also think you did a good job explaining the different lingo on Twitter and how to navigate the site. One suggestion would be to zoom in on the screen when you were pressing a button or typing something in because it was hard to see what you were doing at times. Another suggestion would be to lower the audio, at times it was too loud that it got distorted and was difficult to hear. Overall, good job!
I liked this video and I really like Twitter! I use it frequently and even more so now than Facebook. I thought you did a good job showing the audience exactly what to do. I also think it was very informational and like how you included trending topics. A suggestion is that the screen was kind of hard to read, especially with the first few screen shots. Also, the end could have been a little more entertaining. Overall, I think you did a good job!
Pretty good video. I do not use Twitter so this taught me a lot. I wish the sound quality could have been better because it was a little distracting at times. You could have made this even better by wrapping up the video with a conclusion. Overall, pretty good job!
I really enjoyed your 5x7 presentation. One thing I liked about your video was that it was extremely informative. You did a great job with explaining how Twitter works. I especially liked how you explained all of the “Twitter lingo”. Another thing I liked was the ending of your video, where you mentioned your mom was on Twitter. This was not only entertaining, but also a great way to illustrate the use of Twitter.
One thing that could improve your video is better voice over quality. Your narrations were a little loud, and it was hard to understand what you were saying at times. Another thing that could improve your video is more video clips and music. These things would make your video more engaging and entertaining to the viewer.
