Heading casing[edit]

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==

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

Structure and content[edit]

  1. Overview
    1. Sets up the problem to be solved (the question i.e., the subtitle for the book chapter) but could take more time to explain what AF is and what will be covered in this presentation.
  2. Selection and organisation
    1. Well selected content - possibly too much content is presented - be more selective - because it feels somewhat rushed. For example, work backwards from 3 take-home messages to work out what content needs to be presented - and then focus on only that which is essential to conveying these messages.
    2. Well structured.
    3. Theory rich; research poor.
    4. Partly addresses a self-help theme.
    5. Perhaps consider using more illustrative examples.
    6. Include citations and references.
  3. Conclusion
    1. Well summarised - but add take-home messages.


  1. Audio
    1. Well narrated.
    2. Audio is reasonably clear and well-paced (slightly too fast).
  2. Visuals
    1. Basic - approximately half a dozen text-based slides with some images.
    2. Consider including more images, figures, and/or tables.
    3. Visuals are clear and easy to read.

Production quality[edit]

  1. Overall, basic, effective production.
  2. Meta-data
    1. Rename the title so that it includes the subtitle (and matches the book chapter).
    2. Link from book chapter to presentation not provided (a link has now been added).
    3. Link to the book chapter provided.
    4. Fill out the description field (e.g., brief description of presentation, license details, and possibly include references, image attributions, and/or transcript).
  3. Audio recording quality
    1. Reasonably good
    2. Consider using an external microphone to improve audio recording quality.
  4. Image/video recording quality
    1. Excellent
