The tutorial was awesome. It was really helpful. The intro was cute and I like how humor was in the video. The sound quality was rough but bearable (not to sound rude, it could have been my computer). Other than that it was was a job well done!

You did a great job of discussing the different features of WordPress. I also liked how your music volume complemented you voices and didn't feel overbearing. Your use of humor was also pretty fun!

Clearing up the audio would help a lot with this video. Not only getting the fuzz out, but also eliminating the background noise. I would also work on filling the parts where you aren't speaking, sometimes it felt a little awkward.

I LOVED YOUR VIDEO!!!! It was a good video, but what got it 5 stars was the fact that you used the organization that I am on the executive board of to show a wordpress website... UF College Democrats! :) I liked you music and the volume quality was pretty good. I also really enjoyed you story about a girl studying in Italy.

There were some parts however, where I thought the music was a little to loud for the dialogue. Also, at some parts I could here background noise like you were in a resturant or something.

Funny. I liked what you chose as an example for your blog. I am a big fan of WordPress and everything was explained well.

The microphone was clipping the whole time. I also found my self singing "Meet Me Halfway" rather than paying attention to how wordpress works! I like the black eyed peas but I wanted to pay more attention to your video! :(

nice video! i loved the "Lady and the Tramp" scene! It was really funny and was one of the things that really kept my interested! I like how you showed the use of Wordpress in the classroom but also out of the classroom. This would make it more relatable to real-life.
For improvement, I would work on the sound. I had to adjust the volume levels a couple times.I also thought the background music was a little distracting at some points when you were talking.
Great job!!!

I really enjoyed this video! I thought the "Hot Italian boyfriend" and "Lady and the Tramp" scenes were really funny. I also liked the choice of background music for the video. Last, I never knew what Wordpress was before this tutorial so I definitely learned a lot from it!

If I had to improve the video, I would the work on the sound quality but other than that, great job!

I really liked the video, especially both the images used and the application of Wordpress to real life situations. I also liked how you showed how Wordpress could be used in the classroom.

For improvement, I would fine tune the audio to minimize static. Also, closer images of the website would be useful.

I thought that your tutorial was very nice and that you thoroughly explain how to use wordpress. I also liked the Lady and the Tramp clip. It added a little humor to the project.

My only issues were that at times there was some kind of static noise whenever the mic was spoken into which was a little distracting. I would also have liked more added clips (like the lady and the tramp) to make the video more interesting.

I think the video is put together very well! I found the demonstration of how to use wordpress to be helpful and kept my attention.

I did find the music to be a little distracting at some points, but other than that the video was great!

Great video! I think that y'all did a really good job with the tutorial. It was very clear and actually showed me how to use Word Press, which I had never even heard of before. I especially liked the examples you used, such as the Lady and the Tramp one. I think that it kept your audience interested and entertained.

The only critiques I have is that you could hear people talking in the background in the beginning and the music was a little distracting sometimes. But besides that, I really enjoyed the video!

i think you ladies did a great job. before waching this video i had never heard of wordpress. yall did a great job of simply explaining what it is and how to navigate through the website. some of the examples you decided to use were a good way to add a little flair. good job!

I really liked the anecdote. It made the use of the technology relatable. I also thought it was age-appropriate and I thought it was humorous. It was also easy to follow along with the presentation.

My only criticism is the audio quality, but I don't even think that's your fault. Good job!

I enjoyed the clip of Lady and the Tramp. I was very informational and it ended with a good kicker. Nice use of instrumentals as well.

Focused a lot on the actual website instead of possibly incorporating other aspects. Sound is a little off in the beginning.

This video was very informative! I had no clue what Wordpress was, prior to watching this! You also demonstrated how it could be integrated in the classroom--which is very important. One thing that detracted from your video was the music. I personally love the song, however, it was slightly distracting. I understand that you guys were trying to engage your audience though. Maybe consider lowering the background music.

This was a very solid video. The audio and the visual were easy to follow. Also, I enjoyed the examples of mike an susie.
It is hard to think of anything that needs improvement. If anything, you could go deeper into what wordpress is capable of, but really, this video does a fine job explaining it.

I found the video very informative and interesting. Before watching it I had no idea that word press existed and I thought it was really cool. I also really liked how you made wordpress relevant by making up characters with their own story and use of word press.

The audio wasn't great quality and the music was a bit distracting but other than that you girls did a great job!

I loved the introduction because it made me pay attention with all of the cute clips and narration. I also thought your directions for the tutorial were clear and informative.

For me, the music in the background was distracting while someone was giving instructions. Also, sounding more enthusiastic could help viewers stay tuned.

I thought the tutorial was very helpful, and how you explained how to navigate the site was great. I also like how you explained two very different people who could both use WordPress to be helpful in their lives.

In the audio in the beginning I could hear someone talking in the background, which was a little distracting. Also, the music was a little loud as well. Great video!

I enjoyed the tutorial through the website. The correlation with the boyfriend and the lady and the tramp clip was my favorite part of the video. I would suggest to zoom in on some content on the wordpress webpage. My idea would be to find something to make the video more interesting throughout and not so mono toned in some points.
