Sample Videos

View these videos for ideas on what makes an engaging video. As you watch, consider the elements that make each video engaging and how you could use those elements to explain evidence-based concepts (which is one of the goals of this project after all!)

 

Examples of highly rated and high-scoring group project videos from previous semesters of 1510 and 1520.
