This video was really cool. I thought it was entertaining with the music (who is that btw??) and the transitions were done well. I feel like I got the idea on how it worked, but it would have been nice to see a little bit of a demonstration. Also maybe it could have had a bit of a verbal part with an elaborated explanation to how it is useful in a classroom, however I still really like the way it was made. good stuff

Good job! The quality of the visual was really great and the background music was enjoyable.

As for improvement, the video was a little short and it would have been nice to have a verbal explanation accompanying the visual. Overall, great job!

Really well done video. Pretty advanced stuff and the transitions were well done. Very interesting. Good information.

It was a little short and it would have been nice to hear your voice more.

I enjoyed the video and thought it looked really professional. I actually liked that there was no spoken audio because often it's not very clear. The background music was also perfect.

In terms of improvement, the video was quite short, and I though was lacking a better explanation of HOW exactly to use digital storytelling. Without using spoken audio, you could have added more text explanations about how exactly to create a digital story. Other than that, I thought the video was great!

I thought this video had great editing and transitions between the pictures. I also enjoyed the background music; it was very relaxing.

For improving the video, I would have liked to see more than just pictures. Try recording yourselves or using the "screenr" website to show us how to use digital storytelling. Also, the length of the video hindered me from learning how to use and what digital storytelling is. By the end of it, I still was confused on these two topics.

I really liked this video. It was simple, but in a good way. It was very clear what you wanted to get across, and the visuals made it easy to understand.

My only criticism is to add some voice to it. I feel like a person doing some explaining would make the points more clear with the images.

I really liked the music. I also really enjoyed the visual affects. The text went along really well with the affects and photos.

I wish that the video had some verbal audio, although, and maybe add some humor or something else to keep the audiences' attention.

I thought the video was put together very well, and liked the music that was playing in the background

I would have liked to hear some voice narration in the video as well, I got a little bored just reading off of the screen.

I really liked the series of images of the music notes continuing on the page. You clearly defined what digital story telling was. You did a great job of making sure text was on the screen long enough to comfortably read without it hanging too long for it to be awkward. Going off that, you did great to not have too much text on the screen at once.

I would have liked to see a variety in image effects and the transitions line up with the music more, but I know that's a difficult thing to do. An overall outline or step-by-step guide would be nice to have on one or two frames so that we can see the full process instead of just portions of it. A more defined ending would have summed up the video well too.

I liked the soothing music and many of the accompanying visuals, including the use of different camera shots and angles to make the video more interesting.

I would have liked some additional narration in conjunction with the text. I had some issues keeping focused on continually reading the text without any voice accompaniment.

Your video had a very professional look, which made it feel authoritative, like you knew everything there is to know about your content. Also, I like how the video itself was an example of a digital story. On that note, I think it should have been pointed out that the video was a digital story, or, if you did not want it that way, you should have included an example. I think that explanations were too vague. It could have been clearer if audio narration was added.

The video was very easy to watch and looked very professional because of your great use of the music, text, and transitions.

I would have verbalized some of the descriptions because as a viewer, they can easily be missed when they cross the screen. I would also be more informative as exactly how to use the program (more details).

Overall, great job!!

I thought that video had great transitions, the best transitions thus far. I also liked the music that you used.

My critiques would be that as I watched the video, at least in the introduction, I expected to hear some kind of narration. Reading the screen sometimes became boring. I also would have liked to see a better detailed description on what exactly digital storytelling is, how and why I would use it.

I really enjoyed the flow of the video. The editing was very well done, and I liked the introduction showing how storytelling has evolved overtime.

I wish you would have added more examples of how digital storytelling could be applied in the classroom. I think Digital storytelling could have a very unique place in the classroom. Great video!

I like how the video showed the innovation of technology through story telling. The background and simple wording made it clear and easy to understand.

In some spots I think the words should have stayed on the screen longer due to some people who might be average or slow readers. Maybe when they were showing the computer software of digital storytelling to explain more what they software is or how it works, adding in a little more detail.

The video was very well made and I also very much enjoyed the music and the simplicity of it.

However, after watching the video, I'm still not quite sure what it is, or how it would be used in the classroom. The description was a little vague. I also agree that voices would have engaged me a bit more. But good job!

Excellent job editing all of that together! the flow of the video seemed flawless. Even though it was simple the video was able to keep my attention.

I would have liked to hear more examples of how this can be used in the classroom. Also, I think vocal narration could have added to the presentation even though you still got the point across.

This was a really great video! It was really well made and I liked the simplicity of it. The music was nice too.

The only thing was I did get a little tired of reading everything and I think that digital storytelling should have been explained a little more. Overall though, I was definitely impressed by the video!

I liked the editing and transitioning. The music was relaxing, it was simply done.

I eventually got tired of reading everything. There was no audible narration and the video was under 3 minutes. I'm just not convinced that digital storytelling in the classroom would work from this video.
