Here's a list of some very good presentations:
- Emotional intelligence
- Growth through adversity
- Handling stress
- Music and emotion

Marking criteria 
Below are some general comments about this exercise.
- Overall, the standard varied widely. Presentations ranged from basic bullet-point text and fast, monotone reading of a prepared script through to highly creative and engaging documentary, interview, and animated-style presentations.
Structure and content 
- The best presentations focused on a relatively small amount of carefully selected content, emphasing explanation and illustration of key take-home messages.
- Many presentations tried to present too much in too little time.
- In the general introduction, at the beginning, establish the self-help focus questions and/or provide an overview of what will covered. It might also be helpful to establish interest in the topic e.g., through a scenario or problem. What is the problem? Why is it important? What will I gain by watching this?
- Provide a conclusion or summary emphasising take-home messages.
- The presentation should stand-alone, so don't overly reference back to the book chapter.
- Some presentations used a simple, but effective motif to add interest to the presentation.
- In some presentations the audio was too quiet and/or was distorted e.g. with white noise.
- In many presentations, the narration was too fast.
- In many presentations, the narrating voice could have used greater tonal variation to facilitate viewer interest and attention.
- More examples could be used.
- Presentations that "took a risk" were often some of the better ones (e.g., by taking a creative approach - e.g., presenter of the happiness chapter dressed up as a clown).
- Slide animation was often used effectively particularly to reveal bullet points one by one.
- Font colour could be different for key words.
- Best to use font types such as Arial to aid clarity and readability.
- Sometimes font sizes were too small to be easily read.
Production quality 
- Production quality varied but was generally very good.
- Avoid clashing background music with narration - this makes it hard to concentrate on the key point. However, some presentations used a short musical intro and conclusion which worked well.
- Animation of bullet-points can help to focus viewer attention on each point
- Presentations were in the following formats (from most to least popular): screenr, youtube, authorstream, slideshare, archive.org. Youtube provided an excellent platform for viewing and disseminating.
- An easy-to-click link to the book chapter was often not provided e.g., in the multimedia description
- A copyright license for the presentation was often not included - Creative Commons Attribution is suggested
- Image attributions were often not included. Many presentations violated copyright by using non-free images and used them without acknowledgement.
