Great instructions. I am glad you figured out a work around to submit this. This was a very creative lesson!

The overall presentation as fabulous!  It was engaging and interesting.  I like that you hold the learner accountable throughout the video.  My one thought is this.  I wanted to see what happens when a learner gets a question wrong.  When I did this, it sent me back 5 or so minutes in the video and never springboarded me back to where I was so I ended up watching that whole 5 minute segment again.  Is there a way to provide quick feedback which wouldn't cause the learner to have to revisit the whole presentation.  I don't know if it is even possible, but may be worth looking into.  Overall I loved it.  I have never used camtasia and was impressed with its features.

I really enjoyed your did a nice job of hitting the highlights of moving from segregation to integration. My favorite part was at the end when you used a "quiz" to fill in the diagram-brilliant!

Technical Remarks:

I'm not sure if the Rainbow slide is the best choice for Brown v was a little hard to read and didn't seem to fit in with your overall theme.
