A well designed and organised presentation. The multimedia presentation does a competent job of informing the viewer about punishment and about motivation, however, the link between what punishment and motivation (what motivates people to punish?) could be made clearer. The presentation spends a lot of time discussing a detailed overview of punishment and not enough time discussing relevant theory and research on what motivates people to punish. Drawing on more of the theory and research from the book chapter would have improved the presentations content. The content itself is somewhat dry (academic) and could be improved by including case studies and other examples. A both overview and conclusion slides are provided. In-text referencing to match the end of text reference list would improve the presentation as it is difficult for the viewer to establish whether the information is fact or personal opinion.
Communication is basic but good. The audio component is well-paced. There is good usage of images and colour on slides to engage the viewer. Additional usage of illustrative examples, interactive slides and questions posed to the audience would improve the presentation some more. There was quite a lot of verbal audio material compared to visual material in the slides, more of a balance (e.g., slightly less audio material spoken more slowly with richer use of visual aids) would also improve the presentation.
The presentation had good picture quality and demonstrated good use of a basic production tool (screenr) to communicate ideas. Audio quality, however, could have been improved significantly by using a clearer voice at a bigger distance from the microphone as there is a significant vibration throughout the audio that occurs after speaking – this is very distracting.
