    For the beginning of the video, I feel that the speed o dialogue was too fast. The diagrams weren’t explained either. I understand they were representative of the data you were speaking, but I think you should have said “Diagram A here is showing such and such occuring”

  2. apeters35 says:

    Slide layouts helped make the presentation very easy to follow. Speaking may have been a little quick. Charts were helpful.

  3. nnuthivana3 says:

    The video was very informative, and the story in the end was a nice idea. The audio was sometimes too quick to make sense though.

  4. sreginauld3 says:

    The video has a very good transition from history to present/current evidence of GMO’s/Superweeds. The story was very informative in understanding the concept of superweeds.

  5. gwang76 says:

    Having yourselves in the video rather than narrating the powerpoint slides would have made the video more interesting. Altogether good job though!

  6. twommack3 says:

    Informative video, the slides helped to understand the information better. The ending was creative and made the video more interesting. Good job!

  7. kmagid3 says:

    Very informative video with easily understandable explanations of the topic. The voiceovers were just a little quick to keep up with, and the data tables a little too small to read.

  8. mmosgrove6 says:

    Interesting background on generation of pesticide resistant weeds! Not sure of scope of research paper, but possibly could have discussed implications/problems for agricultural industry? Good job integrating class material in with background information, and nice “story” at the end.

  9. akvg3 says:

    Overall I thought it was a very good video. All of the concepts were explained well but everyone talked to fast that it was hard to understand some of the information you were throwing at us.

  10. ryoung70 says:

    Great video! I think the PowerPoint slides were very informative and the bit on Weedville at the end was entertaining. At times, you sounded rushed in your speaking, but otherwise it was a great video!

  11. sawan3 says:

    4.5 Many of the portions were both easy to follow and informative, such as the progression of the weeds and the herbicides and how the weeds then evolved. It was also nice to have the important information repeated as this event was also presented in a story format. The table at one point was hard to understand and the information there was hard to follow.

  12. apatel404 says:

    The speed of the speech is very fast and makes the video hard to understand. It is very informative which is a good thing, but it becomes a little dry after a while. Overall good job! I loved the ending! It was a needed change of pace.

  13. ssmith369 says:

    Ultimately full of great information. This being said, the delivery is rushed and rather dry. An employment of live action video, comedy, or animation (prior to the 3:30 mark) may have helped keep my interest throughout. What’s more, it may have been beneficial to present the information in a more simplified, brief manner

  14. jknipe3 says:

    The audio was a little hard to hear and the speaking was a little too fast, but overall great content. I like how you showed quantifiable data that superweeds are becoming less affected by herbicides.

  15. tdiaz8 says:

    I liked your use of the slides that had text and images while one person explained each point. The slides were very informative and the animation at the end created a nice visual. The speaking parts could have been slowed down a little bit, but the information was very concise and clear.

  16. sbasta3 says:

    The beginning slides were very neat and made it easy to follow along the audio. However, the audio was a little fast at times. Overall, good presentation.

  17. rforloine3 says:

    Your narrator’s voice sounds sped up and is distracting but you have a lot of information.

  18. ntaylor37 says:

    The information is good but hard to follow, make it presented in a more interesting way and slow down the narrator’s voice.

  19. kchan45 says:

    The narrator’s voices are sped up and distracting to viewer. The charts shown had tiny writing and could barely be seen. However, there was a lot covered in the video.

  20. gmathew6 says:

    Very thorough and great use of example to help incorporate ideas. A bit too much information.

  21. jtruax3 says:

    The narrator’s voice in the beginning was too fast and distracting; you tried to fit too much information in a short period of time as opposed to trying to make the information more concise. The other narrators were just find, providing sufficient, detailed information. I also thoroughly enjoyed the story of the superweed.

  22. mchandler30 says:

    All of the graphic images throughout the video were very entertaining and your video contained a lot of information.

  23. lballew3 says:

    The only problem that i have with the video is that the narrator’s voice is clearly sped up in order to meet the 5 minute time limit. And also a PowerPoint is not very original formatting for a presentation

  24. sfield3 says:

    The fast narrator voice detracted from the good information being presented.

  25. bwayland3 says:

    The information presented is excellent, but the way it is presented is a bit dry.

  26. smehta73 says:

    You definitely know a lot about your topic. However you did not convey you knowledge in the best way. Also some of the charts were hard to see but you did explain them so it sufficed.

  27. mweaver9 says:

    The narration is a bit too quick to keep up with. It’s a bit of information overload, could use a bit of breaking up.

  28. jjohnson396 says:

    Great information on resistance concept! Hard to listen to the narration but enjoyed the extra information it allowed for.

  29. klanthier3 says:

    it seems like your video lost focus

  30. jeverett30 says:

    The context is solid and the video is smooth. It’s a bit hard to understand at times but overall it’s clear and informative.

  31. sparra6 says:

    The video was very informative overall. I definitely appreciated the explanation of the superweeds, including the story at the end. The voices were a little fast, but the visuals helped a great deal.

  32. cbattle6 says:

    The voice makes some of the information hard to hear,but good information!

  33. smudrinich6 says:

    Very informative and pretty well done, but with each successive narrator, the speed of the voice increased and the sound quality decreased. Also a bit confused on the nice little animated story at the end. Great job, though! I liked it a lot.

  34. smitra36 says:

    Interesting topic and good information, the narrators spoke very fast though.

  35. amawad3 says:

    Pretty good video. Lots of information presented to prove your point to the audience. Used different types of evidence.

  36. hwilliams42 says:

    Great video and very detailed information! The talking was kind of fast, but there was a lot of information to cover and it was still comprehensible

  37. kmartin65 says:

    The large amount of information is almost overwhelming but it is very informative

  38. dherszenhaut3 says:

    The information was well-explained and the examples helped to explain the genetics concepts. The voice of the narrator was, however, a bit fast at times.

  39. gsanders31 says:

    In addition to being informative, I liked how “fun” the group made it- the added superhero drawings and smiley and frowny faces throughout the video made me want to watch it!

  40. mbunker6 says:

    I like that you have slides that I can read because it helps me keep up and burns the information into my brain better.

  41. rgolding3 says:

    There seemed to be too much information in the video. An overview might have been more helpful and entertaining.

  42. ahendrix9 says:

    A lot of really nice information, but the way it was set up like a slide show made it a little boring after a while.

  43. bhuggins3 says:

    The narrator was a little fast, but the story to describe super weeds was fantastic

  44. jrogers89 says:

    It seems that superweeds are a huge problem for farmers because they spread their resistant genes and a whole field is contaminated. Having to completely scrap an entire plot of a crop would seriously mess up a farmer’s plan for that harvest season. I don’t personally have any problems with GMO’s, and it seems they’re actually really helpful with maintaining superweeds if the research companies can work out the kinks and apply what they’ve found to the superweeds.

  45. lkrause7 says:

    the content was good but the narrator talked a little too fast

  46. smeka6 says:

    Overall, the video was informative. However, the speech in video was a little too fast. Other than that, video was good

  47. mpzd3 says:

    The information was presented in a clear way, but this could have been a little more engaging. However, you presented A LOT of material in a short amount of time, which is great. Good job, guys.

  48. npittman6 says:

    Audio was a bit hard to hear at times, but you all obviously put in a lot of work!

  49. hjo35 says:

    Nice Video and Good efforts. Only problem was it is really hard to follow the narrator and the quality of sound.

  50. nnambiar6 says:

    The video has nice visuals and story, but the audio is sometimes hard to understand.

  51. creinhardt6 says:

    A bit monotonous and repetitive in the way that information was presented, but overall a good video.

  52. areddy35 says:

    The video contained a lot of information to comprehend in such a short time frame, but was interesting all the same.

  53. cfares3 says:

    The video was very informative and transitioned very well from segment to segment. Good job!

  54. shoover30 says:

    I like the power point visual effect for the theme of your video but the talking was very fast but it was good still.

  55. mdt7 says:

    The beginning of this video, the narrator speak too fast. The slides are clear and easy to follow.

  56. jno9 says:

    The power point slides really helped me understand about GMOs and super weeds. But, the narrator speaks too fast to follow.

  57. bposadas3 says:

    The slides have good information, however the sped-up audio is very difficult to understand.

  58. bposadas3 says:

    The slides provide good, comprehensive information; however the sped-up audio is difficult to understand.

  59. skim817 says:

    Audio is really fast and hard to understande but slides helped to understand.
    Overall, it is informative and helpful.

  60. jkim3086 says:

    Good topic to study! Well made PowerPoint provided good visual understanding!

  61. cgomez37 says:

    The slides were good but the talking was way too fast

  62. ybelhseine3 says:

    Perhaps you could slow the audio down a little bit. I know it hard to get all of the info you want in a video of such short length, but that is part of the challenge. Be more precise I guess. But, yes, the video was good with understandable information.

  63. amomin8 says:

    It was very clear that you guys sped up the audio. Despite that, it was very informative video-cast and you guys backed up everything you said with a great amount of scientific data. I also liked how the superweeds were personified.

  64. imarkale3 says:

    The video is a little fast and lacking in creativity, but the facts and information chosen contributed to the awareness of GMOs and superweeds.

  65. asellers9 says:

    This was a very informative video! The only thing is that the speakers seem to talk really fast and it can be hard to understand.
