    Really enjoyed the way you used markers in the video. Also, nice job drawing a connection back to the modules in class.

  2. Rebecca says:

    The drawings and voice over are really well done. You guys made really good connections back to the modules too.

    Very well structured argument! It’s an interesting issue of trying to destroy a species by genome-specific methods. All you do is free up some space in a population for its exponential growth factor to fill in the blanks with extremely robust replacements! I’d be interested to look into how this works on an individual level. What does the bacteria population making a person sick look like after extended periods of antibiotic treatment, and how do doctors deal with that?

    The drawings help to make the video more engaging, and the paper came across as pretty interesting as a result.

  18. Sabrina says:

    The drawings were really good, but the explanation of the study was even better. I felt like I got a good grasp of the study and the science behind it.

  19. Hannah says:

    I really enjoyed the illustrations in this video! The use of the graphs and visuals were helpful in enabling me to better understand the information. I thought this was an excellent summary of the study and its findings!

  20. Timothy says:

    I was impressed by the visuals, great use of color! Also, the video did a great job of referencing the topics discussed in lecture. This definitely helped me understand the study, overall.

  21. Ishita says:

    The article’s findings are well explained and you gave good background info to understand the topic as well. The audio is a little too quiet but the pictures are great

  22. Vanessa says:

    I think your video was amazing. You not only provided evidence from the article, but you also took the time to explain what certain phrases meant . This allowed me to understand the topic and the thoroughly understand the experiment conducted. This was Great !

  23. Alaina says:

    Drawing on the white board was a great way to get your points across and explain everything

  24. Colman says:

    Great job! a very convincing video

  25. Cameron says:

    Very easy to follow. Great job linking back to the modules, too.

  26. Diana says:

    Clearly explained the experiment. I like that you added more information about the terms. It made it easier to understand. You also tied it back to the modules nicely.

  27. Connor says:

    solid video. Good use of visuals. I like how you explained the background information. Overall interesting topic.

  28. David says:

    The information was well researched. However, The visuals could have been clearer and the narrator’s voice is quite breathy and can at times be hard to understand.

  29. Rachel says:

    The video is very well put together and the concepts are explained clearly. Good job incorporating the modules into the explanations, which really helps connect the study to what we are learning.

  30. Bryan says:

    Helpful and informative video. The whiteboard concept was very nicely used.

  31. Kelly says:

    I like how you guys explained the different elements to this research topic. Like in the introduction, you give definitions about estuaries, and ARGs which allowed me to understand the research better as the video went along.

  32. Mason says:

    The visuals that you used in this video are fantastic, and I thought it was helpful that you explained the background info from the study along with the main concepts.

  33. Luke says:

    Your video did a fantastic job explaining the research paper through visuals and a clear summary of information. Keeping the audience in mind when defining terms and connecting the material to class concepts really helped me understand the study.

  34. Niya says:

    Great illustrations, they lined up well with the audio. Explanations were slow enough for viewers to understand perfectly

  35. Nathan says:

    You were able to explain an incredible amount of information in a short amount of time and I liked the way to connected it to the big picture. At some points, however, the information was explained very quickly and flew over my head.
