Marking criteria[edit | edit source]

Below are some general comments about this exercise.

Overall[edit | edit source]

  1. Overall, the standard varied widely, however none of the presentations submitted on time failed. Presentations ranged from simple bullet-point text and a monotone reading of a script through to highly creative and engaging interview-style presentations.

Structure and content[edit | edit source]

  1. The best presentations focused on presentating a smaller amount of carefully selected content.
  2. Many presentations tried to present too much in too little time.
  3. In the general introduction, at the beginning establish what is the topic? Why is it important? What will I learn by watching this?
  4. Image attributions wer often not included. Most presentations violated copyright by using non-free images and used them without acknowledgement.
  5. Several presentations did not indicate a copyright license.

Communication[edit | edit source]

  1. Engage the listener by establishing why the topic is important.
  2. In some presentations the sound was too quiet.
  3. In many presentations, the narration was too fast.
  4. In many presentations, the narrating voice could have used greater tonal variation to help arouse and maintain interest.
  5. Presentations that "took a risk" were often some of the better ones (e.g., by taking a creative approach - e.g., the presenter of the happiness chapter dressed up as a clown).
  6. Slide animation can be used effectively particularly to reveal bullet points one by one.
  7. Font colour could be different for key words
  8. Best to use font types such as Arial to aid clarity and readability.

Production quality[edit | edit source]

  1. Production quality was generally good.
  2. Avoid clashing background music with voice and vision - it's hard to concentrate on the key point. Some presentations used a short musical intro and conclusion which worked very well.
  3. Animation of bullet-points can help to focus viewer attention on each point
  4. Presentations were in the following formats (from most to least): screenr, youtube, Youtube was an excellent platform for viewing and disseminating.
