This video is a great introduction of how to use the Google Presenter Tool.  I really liked that the video had a "highlighted" cursor that showed exactly where you find features and edit information.  The video goes through all the simple steps and shows the similarities with Microsoft Powerpoint.  This video has the audio and visual component so that all students (and adult learners) can follow along with creating their own Google Presentation.

Your tutorial on Google Presentation was easy to understand the different aspects of the presentation application. It was easy to follow, especially since your cursor was highlighted the entire time and the large arrows were pointing toward important features. The assessment at the end highlighted the main points that you hoped users would learn about by watching your tutorial video. I think you hoped users would be creating a presentation while they were watching the tutorial, so maybe making that more clear in the beginning would be my suggestion to make the tutorial more interactive.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the assessment questions were not fully shown on the screen or were cut off. Also, my video paused itself frequently during the video. I think you were hoping the users were completing the steps as they watched, but the pauses were not always at the appropriate places. You might consider having users manually pause if needed.

Your video resource was very easy to follow along. I liked how you had the clicker highlighted the entire time so that the viewer could easily follow along with what you were describing. This really helped guide through what you were showing on the screen. I liked how you asked the viewer to practice inserting a video into their own personal Google Presentation. I think that it might be nice to add more of those “your turn” moments into the video. You could have the viewer practice adding other editors and so forth, similar to what you described in the tutorial. The quiz at the end was a really nice way of summing up the student learning. I am just curious (not sure if this can be done), but is there a way that if the answer is wrong people can be guided back to a certain section of the video? For example, if they missed a question that was described at minute 2, they would be redirected to a clip of that section. I am not sure if that is feasible, but I think could be a pretty cool feature if it is possible.

Overall, this was a very clear tutorial. The quiz and “you try” section helped make it more interactive. Good job!

Technical Remarks:

It may have been my personal computer, but I had times when the video stopped and I had to hit the play button again to continue (even though the button on the bottom did not indicate it was saved). Once I figured out that this was all I needed to correct, the tutorial worked very smoothly.
