    Background information familiarized viewer with information. Infographic were fun to watch and did an excellent job at conveying information along with the speaker. Graphs and figures were explained coherently. Class topics such as gene flow and biological species concept were discussed and made relevant to the article.

  2. Chloe Pryor says:

    The video had really good supporting visuals to explain the data and concepts from the study. I loved the explanation, especially with the animations in the beginning. Good job guys!

  3. Tana Nguyen says:

    I loved the editing for this video! It was very clean and easy to follow. The graphic and editing kept me engaged throughout the whole video. I liked how you guys talked about gene flow and biological species concept in connection to the article and class notes.

  4. Tamia Jones says:

    The commentary inserted throughout the video made it fun to watch! Frankly, I had never heard of Denisovans before this video, and I am glad that I had the opportunity to learn about them. I think you did a really good job explaining the graphs in the video, and defining concepts we may have forgotten or had not seen before. Great job overall!

    It is so interesting that they were able to tell the mother and father type of the 13 year old. The video was well made and easy to follow which is very helpful when covering such a complex topic. The simple graphics allowed for me to understand the topic in the simplest of terms. I loved it!

  7. Jessica Winkler says:

    I really like how this video uses simple images to explain complex topics such as the background info. This allows the viewer to not get overwhelmed with the info. I like how you specifically referenced things from class.

  8. Vivien Ly says:

    This video was very interesting on how all this information came from sequencing a 4000 year old bone fragment. The visuals were engaging and entertaining. I like how you guys tied all the information to the biological species concept and gene flow.

  9. Dorothy Lubin says:

    Wow its crazy how I’ve heard so much about Neanderthals but not about Denisovans until watching this video. Good job connecting biological species concepts such as gene flow to the video and how the different human species migrated from place to place. I especially liked the beginning which was so clear to follow. Cool video!

  10. Jaynie Rice says:

    This video is extremely well done. The graphics and visuals are clear and easy to follow. I found the topic of Denisovans so fascinating. I enjoyed the incorporation of the map in the graphics. The graphs and figures were easy to understand, and I learned a lot. Fantastic Job!

  14. Jessica Meredith says:

    I loved the visuals of the video; they had sort of a Crash Course style that perfectly matched and supported the voiceover. You guys made the topic interesting, and defined all the key terms very clearly. The explanations of the graphs were easy to understand, and the editing was flawless. Amazing video!

  15. Sunny Jin says:

    This video has such good quality. The graphics are engaging and information well-explained and connected. I was really glad to learn about Denisovans and Neanderthals, which I never learned about before. And good job connecting the article back to class concepts!

  16. Aruodo Nnanna says:

    Great video! Clear narration, professional visuals/editing. Thorough and informative and most importantly, broken down at a level that could be clearly understood by someone who isn’t very knowledgable on the topic. Awesome figures/graphs as well.

  17. David Osayi says:

    I find it crazy how Neanderthals get all the spotlight while Denisovans are swept under the rug. I had never even heard of them until this video! The presentation and graphics were pretty good, and the beginning of the video was alluring in the sense that it seemed like the beginning of a book or story. One of the major things that stuck out to me was the connection between your topic and gene flow (thumbs up)

  18. Anastasia Pavlyuk says:

    This topic was very interesting to me! Although it is complex, you guys did a great job of breaking it down and familiarizing the audience with the topics. The graphics helped me understand the topic even more, bravo!

  19. Thy Nguyen says:

    This was a very interesting topic that was also explained pretty well. I liked the comments in the video such as the “whatsup fam” which made the video funny or entertaining in a way. There were also plenty of figures which helped my understanding up the topic.

  20. Nina John says:

    This video was really engaging! I found the information about Denisovans interesting; they are not as well known. The graphs and figures included were relevant to the data. The connections you made to the previous modules were clear.

  21. Anna Wang says:

    The background information was appropriate and ensured viewers understood the context in which this study occurred. The infographics and comments were fun to watch/read and helped keep me engaged throughout the video. Overall, you did an excellent job at fully explaining the article’s main ideas, figures, and class topics!

  22. Veronica Winkeljohn says:

    Really great video and a very interesting topic! The animations are really, really professional, and the audio was clear throughout the video. I enjoyed the map mid-video that showed the locations of the Denisovans, Neanderthals, and modern humans (very interesting). The connections to Biology 1511 towards the end of the video were very clear as well.

  23. Alexandra Edwards says:

    This video did a nice job explaining a unique topic. I can definitely say that I learned a large amount from the video with lots of new interesting facts!
