Overall[edit source]

Overall, this is an interesting and well delivered presentation. Nicely done!

Structure and content[edit source]

The structure is well-formed, and the flow between ideas is good. Research is the primary focus of the presentation, giving it a solid academic quality. The research in this area is also very interesting, so it was nice to get a good in-depth explanation. Theory is less of a focus, and this is an area for improvement. The concluding statements were strong and gave a nice (and still appropriate) personal touch to the presentation.

Communication[edit source]

Communication through the voice-over is a strength of this presentation. The voice-over is well paced, with good intonation and pauses between sentences and slides. It was engaging for the listener. The use of a range of images to re-enforce the information being provided verbally is a nice way of presenting it. However, an area for improvement could be to integrate at least some text in order to emphasise important pieces of information (e.g. conclusions, defining areas of research).

Production quality[edit source]

The production is basic but good. All images, as well as the voice over, are clear and adequate. A link to the book chapter is provided. Copyright license information is provided. The presentation would have a more professional feel if some text was used to portray at least the important pieces of information.

rather than
