Comments[edit source]

Hey! I hope you don't mind, but I just changed your layout for you: I added the title, changed the headings and added 'see also'. Hope it helps you out! --U3082322 (discusscontribs) 21:47, 23 October 2015 (UTC)--U3082322 (discusscontribs) 21:47, 23 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Heading casing[edit source]

Crystal Clear app ktip.svg
FYI, the convention on Wikiversity is for lower-cased headings. For example, use:

==Cats and dogs==

rather than

==Cats and Dogs==

Overall[edit source]

  1. Overall, this is a basic, but sufficient presentation.

Structure and content[edit source]

  4. A Conclusion slide summarising the take-home messages / key points could be helpful.
