Student Reactions
  • “I also have wanted to share with you how much better the internet statistics class is. I took it one or two semesters ago and it was much more difficult. I love the fact that I can watch the video and I have the power point right there. I appreciate all the hard work you put into this class so that we could learn the material better.” …Beth Fanning
  • “Thank you for making a very difficult subject for me easier to understand. The streaming videos are a great way to learn.” …Eileen Bohannon
  •   “I just wanted to let you know I did the review along with the video and that it’s a great help when I can't make it to class, I will be in the early class for the test today.”…Michael Stroud
  • “I love this video. What a great idea, I'm glad you found a way to do it! Thanks”…Susan Pierce

“Just wanted to give some feedback on your streamline video in class; it was great and it really helped prepare me for the test last week. Thank you so much for doing that for our class. You give really good instructions and if I wasn’t bogged down with full time work I would enjoy your class. Just wanted to let ya know how much that helped me. I really hope you will give another review on video for the next test. Thanks a million!”…Veronica Jett (Hogg)

  • “Finally, something worth watching on youtube.”…Linda Kent
  • “Thanks so much for posting the review video! It didn't work on my home computer, but it has been having some problems with the site anyway... the video really helped, I know I can be in class and I think I get it but when I go home and try to work the problems I draw a blank! It helped b/c I can go back and look at what we did... is there anyway maybe you could post all of them???” …Jennifer Barrentine
  • “I am having a hard time with question 6 on homework 8. Is there anyway you could make a short video about it? I am going out of town later this week, so I am trying to get my homework done early. Thank You!! The videos for this lesson were great!”…Rhiannon Boyd

Tips for a good video

  • If you are using documents, set the font to at least 28 point
  • If you are writing while you are lecturing use a black sharpie and practice writing large enough so it is legible in the viewing window.
  • Make sure the mic is close to you so it picks up your voice clearly
  • 4. While a practiced lecture will give you more confidence, the students appreciate seeing a human being – so don’t let a few slight mess ups keep you from posting the stream –
