Fantastic work, Guy!!! I only saw one thing that might help. When downloading the presentation in Chrome, there was no indication of the file size or how long it would take to download. I'm thinking it would be good to at least indicate the file size somewhere since this is absence from the MERLOT Chrome experience. Otherwise, this was great. Great overall user experience and extremely easy to follow.

Great course. It's something that can be used in a number of different circumstances - knowing how to do this could improve any number of things.

I like the step by step process of detailing what students need to start the recording, and giving them the option to explore each step before moving on to the next (if they wish).

Technical Remarks:

My only technical comment is that you may want to add Quicktime as a Technical Requirement in the resource description. When I viewed the material on my laptop (which doesn't have QT installed), I was unable to view the videos.
