Topic feedback and add image[edit source]

Hi Was having a look through the chapters and yours looks great! I thought some images might help break up the text so I added one of Leonardo Da Vinci. Feel free to delete if you dont like it. Good luck with the rest of it! --U3135539 (discusscontribs) 09:55, 20 October 2017 (UTC)

Comment[edit source]

I suggest having more interaction on the page. I also suggested having more hyperlinks to other wiki pages in order to provide more information. Otherwise well done.

  4. The presentation could be strengthened by adding a Conclusion slide with practical, take-home messages.

Communication[edit source]
