Great video! Very informative and entertaining introduction. I loved the music! I never knew a ereader could have so much capabilities in a classroom. Two suggestions would be to show all the great things and ereader can do on an actual ereader. Another would be technical like editing and sound.
The video was extremely informative. I like the portion of the video showing the various books can obtain on the ereaders. Also I like that you guys showed, where I one can download books on e-readers. A suggestion would be to show how to use the e-readers. Another suggestion would be to show how you download a book on e-reader.
I really liked your intro. I'm not a big fan of ereaders for personal use, being a book person myself, but I do think they would be great for schools. Also, I liked how you explained about all the different kinds of ereaders and what their capabilities are, which would be great to help a teacher find out which type of right for them.
My two criticisms are both techinical. The first was that there were points where the volume was weird. I know this has been an issue with a lot of videos. The only other is that you could have cleaned up the voiceover a little. Very good video.
So after watching your video Im researching on purchasing an ereader..very informative video and makes ereaders simple to understand. The little jiggle was very cute and engaging! I would have liked to seen someone using an ereader from purchasing a book through it and all.
I liked that you didn't go too fast or too slow. It seemed reasonable to absorb that much information, but not slow enough to get really bored. Also, I really liked the music in between sections. It kept the energy up and helped hold the audience's attention. It would have been nice to see more of you actually using an ereader. Also, I thought the conclusion could have been improved a little. Great job on this!
I love E-Readers and I loved your video. I like how Rashida mentioned how e-readers can still highlight, bookmark and tag certain pages which still allows for the same benefits as owning a book and moreover, making the text bigger or smaller is a unique benefit as compared to traditional books. I liked the transitions between questions and the pictures because it kept me entertained and wanting to hear more. Two suggestions I would make would be a personal demonstration on how to use it and maybe I would have liked to have heard how e-readers could help with pronunciation, I found that very interesting!
Your musical transitions were entertaining and kept the viewer interested in the video. The information you presented was also very well done. At first, I wondered how much could one say about an ereader, but the information you presented relevant, useful, and clear. I also enjoyed the images you used to backup your presentation. (On a side note, you said that with an ereader a person could read so many books without ever stepping foot into a library or bookstore. It's a good point, but that thought sent shivers down my spine and made me want to run to the library and hug a book.) Something I might suggest changing would be to have the music present more often in the presentation, rather than just at the transitions, and also using other songs throughout. I might also suggest using something other than images to enhance your presentation to keep viewers more interested. Great job.
This was one of the best videos done so far. You both did a very good job of presenting the materials with your voices. You both seemed genuine and not scripted without have any major stumbles. You also did a great job with creating consistent and engaging transitions for each section of your 5x7 presentation. The first small thing that I would change would be the addition of a few visual effects for your pictures and possibly some video content to engage the viewer a little more. Another suggestion would be to edit out the 1 or 2 minor errors in speech that I heard. Overall, it is hard to suggest any changes to your project that could make it better. Great Job!
I loved the transition music and how you guys explained the many uses for eReaders. I would have liked to see more of how to navigate with the eReader.
I love the music you chose to put in between each section! The pictures you used were great too, and I loved the pace that you set them to change at. It really kept me engaged a lot better than a slower moving picture presentation. I would ahve used some music in the background while you both were talking though. It was too quite and, other than the fast changing pictures, I drifted off. I think you could have also added what both of your favorite type of ereader you like most. That way you can give a starting point to the viewer if they really like the product instead of just mentioning and showing a bunch of different kinds of ereaders.
Rashida and Caroline, this video is great! I thought it was filled with a lot of really good information, and the information was organized so well. All the information you presented was very valuable to your subject. I also really liked the music transitions from one subject to the other. It made the video organized. My only points of criticism would be that Caroline's voice became a little quietier than Rashida's. Maybe alter the volume just a tad. I also think it would have helpful to see an eReader in use if one was available for you. But other than that, your videos is one of my favorites.
Hello Rashida and Caroline! Nice video! I liked how you compared the new ereaders to old ereaders by explaining the difference in features. I also liked your hook in the beginning of your video. I think this captures the one of the essential parts of what makes ereaders popular- not having to lug around heavy books! My suggestions to improve your video would be to explain further the android system for those not familiar with that technology. Also, I love a good old-fashioned book, and so I would have liked to hear some of the downsides of ereaders. I liked the music and multitude of pictures and personalization features. Nice video overall!
Things I liked...
1. Your transitions and accompanying photos were great. I really liked the music you played during the transitions.
2. I like how your presentation was organized. You clearly answered all of the required questions.
Some constructive criticism...
1. At one point in the last 40 seconds of the video you quickly showed a lot of pictures. It may just be me, but that kind of distracted me from what you were saying.
2. I didn't do this in my video so I can't really comment on it, but I would have liked to actually see someone turning on an ereader. Just to get an idea of their size, text. etc.
I really enjoyed your presentation.
Although I love books and prefer them over eReaders you girls did a great job convincing me that eReaders have significant educational implications in the classroom. The pictures and music in the video were also good, it made the video much more engaging.
The only constructive criticisms I have are: I would have preferred seeing an actual eReader and how to use it; and, perhaps a better wrap up because once you stopped talking the pictures kept going and even though the music was funky I didn't want to see any more.
Overall, great job! :)
I enjoyed how informative your video was! The information you gave was relevant and clear. I also liked how you used music to signal a transition. It would have been nice to see someone actually using an ereader and showing how to highlight the text, etc. Also, I felt that some of the images you showed at the very end of the video could be removed. I knew the content of the video was over, and I didn't really feel like looking at 5 more pictures after that. But overall, really good job!
Great video girls! I really liked how you kept moving through relevant pictures at at the pace you did to keep the video visually stimulating while you were narrating. I also really liked the funky music in the transitions, it got me all excited to move on to the next thing. Overall the video is just really well made without any technical errors.
A couple points of constructive criticism: Some use of video would have helped to make the presentation more engaging. Although the pictures were well chosen and interesting, some video tutorial of an ereader would have been cool. Also, as Jennifer said, you should not have included more pictures after the narration was over.
I really enjoyed your video! I thought that the music and pictures during transitions were very engaging! I also thought you did a good job explaining what an eReader is and how it can be used for educational purposes. One suggestion would be to show how to actually use an eReader, such as how to download content onto it. Another suggestion would be to match the pictures to what you were talking about, I know its probably hard to find but at times the graphics didn't go along with the information. Overall you guys did a great job!
I actually just got a Kindle a few days ago, and I love it! I think this would be a great substitution to text books in the classroom.I think your video was very informational and you did a good job showing how they could be used in the classroom. You had good graphics and the audio was very clear. I would have liked to see you actually use an ereader instead of just pictures of them. As a new user, I don't fully know how to use mine and would have liked a little more explanation on how to use it. You both did a great job!
I really enjoyed your 5x7 presentation. One thing I liked about your video was how informative it was. You did a great job explaining the different types of eReaders. I also liked the images you used throughout the video. They were interesting to look at, and flowed nicely with your narrations.
One thing that could improve your video is a demonstration of how to use eReaders. You did a nice job explaining them, but your video would be even more informative if there was a step-by-step demonstration of how to use eReaders. Another thing that could improve your video is more video clips. While the pictures were interesting, video clips would be even more entertaining for the viewer.
