I am just doing these vids and would like to know what i can do better as well as
If there are any "XPERTS" who can add / edit their opinion.
note you have linked to an RSS feed of all documents in all forums on this
site; at the moment the top two items are the documents containing links to
your videos, but that won't be true for long
i did look at part of one and will post some hopefully constructive comments,
but i would have found it easier if you had just put the links into a regular
forum message, as i don't subscribe to the "documents" by email
I watched the Virtual List video. All in all it was good. You have a good speaking voice and your commentary is closely linked to the action. It was an interesting subject.
There was a clanger. Don't make mistakes in training materials. It confuses the learner and it wastes time.
I think it would benefit from a more formal structure or "polish" as we like to say. Emulate proven formats. I like the "do it three times" method favoured by cooking shows. It is very simple: you break your presentation into three parts. Introduction (tell people what you are going to do), tuition (do it) and summary (tell them what you just did).
In the cooking shows they are always whipping out the finished dish (Here's one that I prepared earlier!). You could do the same. If you had a finished model you could have shown us the "gee-whiz" bit at the beginning (how would you like one of these, viewers?) and at the wrap up you could be illuminating the summary using the finished model.
I agree with Malcolm especially on the whipping out the finished dish first. Too many sessions, presentations and insructions on how to achieve specific goals fail to clearly and interestingly identify the goals up front.
Great answer Malcolm!

the "documents" you posted with links to the videos have rolled off the feed
linked above, so to help anyone coming later find what you were referencing,
here are direct links:
