    I liked the diagram of the Miller-Urey experiment in the middle of the video, and how it moved around as the presenter discussed each different aspect of that experiment. An improvement to make on this video would be for the speakers to speak at a louder tone and for the writing on the whiteboard to be larger and more legible to the viewers. Informative video and good diagram.

    the animations are really good.

    I liked how you wrote the information down on the board. It made it easy to follow along. However, you should probably up the volume of your voices in the video.

    The case study included in the video was helpful in reinforcing the concepts covered in the beginning of the video. It was a bit difficult to hear at times, but overall I could follow the video well.

    A great summary of the key information regarding the information of life, I appreciated the added details of the study done by Georgia Tech. I think your video could have been improved by focusing more on the applications rather than just a summary of the information.

    Very helpful that you included the case study in your discussion, also it was smart to have several of your group members speaking about the topic – makes it seem like you guys were more prepared.

    Nice touch following the flask graphic while describing the Miller-Urey experiment. Everyone appears well-informed, but try to present with more enthusiasm so that the audience stays engaged and retains the information. Looking into the lens might help with that. I would consider incorporating more illustrations to go along with your textual explanations. Good job!

    The information in this video was excellent. It was straight forward and accurate. However, perhaps the incorporation of more visual into the video like the one used while the Miller-Urey experiment was described would help make the video both easier to follow and more entertaining.

    Visual aids are very nice in this video! I had a hard time following the video because the volume is too low, it’d be good to speak a bit louder or increase the volume using the video editing software. And maybe the presenters should try to sound a bit more enthusiastic instead of simply regurgitating facts.

    The voiceover explanation was great, but what’s up with the fast forewarding of the “lecturing”? It made it hard to follow sometimes.

    You guys did a good job explaining the core concepts and it was nice to see everyone participating in the video. The graphic was also a good touch as it added more color to your video. The background noise and soft speech was sometimes an issue, but overall great job.

    I thought that the inclusion of the Miller-Urey image was very effective and it made the explanation very clear. I think it would have been effective if more visuals such as that one were used and if the presentation was a bit more enthusiastic.
