This lesson inspired me to learn more about Camtasia.  The video is helpful to understanding the information.  You speak clearly and convey the data well.  I also like how you have a video of you explaining the information.  This allows the audience to connect to you and feel that they know the author.   It was useful to have text throughout the video to illustrate certain directions.  The quizzes also help the attendees stay engaged and demonstrate that they’re learning the material.

I wonder if there is a way for you to have caption or transcripts available for those who learn differently.  Also, it would be great if there were stopping points just in case people need to process the information through discussion or project based learning assignment.  Is there a way to get back to the option to choose if we want a quiz or not while the video is playing?

It's such a good idea for online learning or in class review. There are some nice visuals to illustrate the concepts, as well as being able to see and hear you, the instructor, to make it more personable. I also thought the small chunks of lecture and illustrations broken up by quizzes is a nice way to review and learn concepts. I even had a chance to look at my answers, and if they were wrong, I could re-watch the video segment.  Students could spand as long as they needed to to learn.  You were also able to include some text from the class.  I think projectile and physics topics like this should be explained in the multiple ways you hit in order for learners to grasp the concepts.

Great job Corbin, I really liked the use of this projectile motion lab.  It's  a fairly short lab so students can finish it at home, they are asked to record their data and then make observations based on that data for the quizzes.  The screencast does a great job explaining what the students need to do in the lab and I really like how it's broken up into sections with breaks inbetween for students to answer questions.  One thing I noticed though was that the second the video started, it asked me three quiz questions and I was wondering if that was meant for students to review.  One of the questions I did notice was asked again later in another quiz break.

The visuals on this lesson are excellent. Very clear and colorful.  Don't have to guess what's taking place.  The tone and clarity of the voice is good also.  It kept my attention all the way through.  Instructions are very clear also.
