General feedback about
multimedia presentations

This page summarises general feedback about the 2023 multimedia presentations. Detailed feedback about each individual presentation is available on its chapter talk page.

Overall edit

  1. The overall quality of presentations was reasonably good, but there was a wide range.
  2. A surprising number of presentations went over time. Content beyond the maximum time limit was ignored for marking purposes. This often meant 0 or reduced marks for the Conclusion.

Overview edit

  1. Overviews were often missing or too brief
  2. Start off by engaging audience interest (e.g., via an example)
  3. Display and narrate the title and sub-title (which should exactly match the title and sub-title for the book chapter)
  4. Provide some context about why the topic is important
  5. Consider presenting focus questions or at least an outline of what will be covered

Content edit

  1. Content was generally well selected
  2. Content typically did a reasonably good job of synthesising relevant theory
  3. However, presentations typically did a poor ob of synthesising relevant research
  4. Greater use of examples would be useful

Conclusion edit

  1. Conclusions generally did a good job of reinforcing one or more take-home messages

Audio edit

  1. Audio narration was generally quite good
  2. Most presentations were well-paced
  3. Some presentations could be improved by being more selective about what to cover and slowing down
  4. Most presentations were well scripted and practiced

Video edit

  1. Visual presentation was generally very good
  2. Most presentations did a pretty job of showing a small amount of key text per slide in large font, making it easy to read and listen at the same time
  3. Some presentations could have been improved by splitting content from a small number of visually busy slides into a larger number of slides each containing less visual information

Meta-data edit

  1. A moderate number of presentations used the full title and sub-title (or an abbreviated version that fits within 100 characters) as the name of the presentation
  2. Detailed, informative descriptions of the presentation were rare
  3. Most presentations provided a link to the book chapter and a link from the book chapter to the presentation
  4. Some excellent presentations included time code links to specific sections

Licensing edit

  1. Some presentations used copyright restricted images without permission  
  2. Most presentations indicated a copyright license for the presentation
