The intro was cool and it was very informative. IT did get a a bit boring (back ground music would have fixed that) and the images were blurry. Other than that it got the point across, and the intro/conclusion had the humor effect. good job

It was very informative. Every question was answered. Perfect length. Great voices for narrating, very well spoken.

Some resolution was lost in the conversion and I couldn't exactly make out anything on the page.

Good job! I thought the introduction was really creative and I found the presentation very informative. However, the visual quality was poor and there were a few gaps in the commentary. Other than that you guys did great!

I really liked the beginning of the video. I thought it was engaging and made me want to keep watching! I also really enjoyed The Office clip at the end!

In terms of improvement, the visual quality of the video is poor. If you use screenr.com, you can take video screenshots of any computer you're working on, and the resolution is awesome. Also, the sounds in some parts of the video is shaky. This can be fixed by putting the clips together in a smoother way.

I really enjoyed the beginning of the video! The introduction was a great attention grabber that kept me wondering what was going to happen next. Also, I learned a lot about Wikipedia that could help me in the future!

One area of improvement would be to make the visual quality better. I could follow along because of the narrative, however, I could not see the content of the webpage at all. I also would improve on the entertainment of the video. It was very informative but lost my attention after awhile.

I really liked the beginning of the video. It was a great attention grabber, and I wanted to know what was going to happen next.

However, I couldn't really see the the explanation part of the video. I couldn't really see the website. Other than that, great job!

I LOVED the twilight intro to the video! I also LOVED the Office ending.
The "meat" of the video itself I thought was well explained, however, the picture quality wasn't great and I thought it could have been a little more entertaining.

I like the humor used to keep the viewers attention. It is also very informative, which is very important.
However, the picture quality is very low which detracts from the overall video. And it is hard to pay attention for a visual learner because there is nothing to really follow on the screen that goes along with what you are saying.

The video was very informative, and the intro really grabbed my attention!

The screenshots were very blurry and I was not able to read them, but other than that I thought the video was very good.

The intro was pretty funny, it definitely grabbed my attention. Great content! You covered a lot of material about Wikipedia, great job!

The resolution of this video is quite low, a higher resolution would be nicer, but I don't know what the limitations of your screen capture software is. I would have worked on the ending a bit more, it felt kind of abrupt. Also, the ending fanfare almost blew my ears off while wearing headphones. Equalizing the audio would have prevented this.

Your video was very informational, it covered most questions I would have about wikipedia. It also had an impressive beginning.
Yet that beginning, ending, and final scene had nothing to do with the presentation. I would like to have seen videos that were incorporated into the content better. Also, the visuals of the video were confusing and hard to see. I would have liked to see less that that it could be more thoroughly explained.

Very informative video! The explanations were very clear and thorough. The screen shots were great for showing how Wikipedia works and is formatted (this would be good for someone who doesn't know very much about Wikipedia)
The images were very blurry and I couldn’t read anything that was displayed. I also would have mixed up some of the narration with animation/music or something so it wasn't straight narration through.

Your video was great! I really enjoyed the introduction because it got my attention immediately. It was also very informative for people who know little to nothing about Wikipedia.

Things you could work on might include your screen shots of the actual site because they were difficult to read for the viewer. Also, sounding more enthusiastic could help the viewer stay tuned into what you are staying. Again, great job!

I thought the introduction was a great attention grabber. The video was also very informative and left no questions unanswered.

I thought that the screenr work was very blurry. For someone like me, who already knows what Wikipedia is like, it was not a problem, but for those who are hearing about Wikipedia for the first time this could be a problem. I would have also liked to see more visuals besides the screen shot of the wikipedia page.

I loved the creativity of the introduction of the video. It instantly caught my attention, and I am sure it would catch other viewers attention as well. And clever ending as well.

The screen shots were blurry. Also, some of the audio sounded a bit too scripted, but I think you did a great job overall!

I like the little scary approach at the beginning, it helps grab the viewers' attention. I like the show clip at the end of the video along with the playing cards.

I would suggest making the Wikipedia screen shots more clearer or have a better resolution. I would improve the amount of wordiness, ummms, and transitions in between speakers.

Haha the intro always reminds me of Tower of Terror. The information you provided was solid. And I love the office clip, best show ever.

The video seemed a little bit low quality (it was hard to read the screen) and it sounded like you guys were just reading off a script. But good information!

I like the clips you added. They added humor and kept me engaged. The explanations were very informative.

The screen was very blurry and I could not really see what pages you were looking up and scrolling to. I also was a little distracted when what you were saying was not related to what was going on on the screen.

Good video! I liked the intro and thought it was very informative! However, the screen shots of the actual wikipedia page were very blurry and I could not read anything that it said. It also got a little boring. Overall though, good job!!
