  1. This project looks great! I wanted to ask about what part of the process was most challenging? Any place you got hung up or got stuck? Any advice for other schools looking to do a similar project?

    • Hi Jen!

      Thanks for your feedback and question!! For me the most difficult part was the learning curve with the web based screencasting tools. There is some wonk to overcome. If I had to recommend some advice, I can say our collaboration worked really well when we began to assign roles in the production process. All group members worked on the bigger picture, but everyone had designated roles in the production process. It is making the project more efficient as we are now preparing a large scale roll out at the end of the summer. Thanks Jen!!!

  2. Dan, I clicked on this not realizing it was your project!

    It’s so great to see where the project has gone and how much you all have accomplished. Kudos to you, it looks great!
