    I liked that the questions they had during their “Evolutionary Game” were a good review over the broad topics of the evolution module. I think the video would’ve been better if they had shown the actual people in their video and not just cut to empty desks in an empty classroom.

    1) Very unique idea, using a gameshow as a method of disseminating information!
    2) Concepts were a little hard to immediately understand when presented in the Jeopardy format. Also, double-check spelling.

  3. RManalo says:

    The format of this video is really clever and really allows the viewer to “interact” with the content. I also like how the “game host” explained why the incorrect answers were incorrect. Tiny flaw: “altruism” (the category header) was misspelled.

  4. JHaines says:

    Including both a wrong answer followed by the correct answer and a short explanation as to why the wrong answer was wrong and how to fix it was very effective. It helped explain the topic more in depth. I felt more visuals could have been included, though. This would help the audience better understand what you’re trying to explain by seeing the topic at hand.

    This video was interesting and covered the topic pretty well. However, I feel like the setup prohibited the group from providing the viewer with visuals.
