Hi! I can't watch or download the video. The session II works just fine, so I think that is a server error. Could anyone verify this technical problem? Thanks!

The video provided resourceful information for the LEED v4 addendum;it also provided cost efficient reasons why to plan early during the integrative process. The presentation was good, however; the only adjustment that needed to be fixed was the audio quality. Good job overall!

Very informative. Thank you USGBC

Project Superintendent Construction, Satterfield Pontikes

Changing Organizations and keeping your current Credential seems difficult.. What is the best way to approach it?

I agree with Amanda about the sound quality, especially for those (like me) whose native language is not English. The course is well structured and useful. Thanks.

Acoustics and video qualities could be improved.

Project Manager / Operations, Halco Service Corp

There were audio issues, i.e., too low then too high but the session was informational. Thank you!

Great putting education material out there to the broader community. I appreciate that work went into making this .

Installation Design Engineer, SCI Electronics Inc

Time to include Audio Visual industry into LEED and we will take care of these audio issues in future. :)

Poor audio made it difficult to understand some of the content.

Thanks for a good course, however the low audio quality makes it hard to follow. Next time I also suggest to use course presenter that can pronounce all the syllables in the English language.

Great first step to putting education material out there to the broader community. I appreciate that lots of work went into making this webinar. In order to increase its impact, it could best be optimized by adapting the material for online learning. The video material is static and tenuously supported by the audio. This dissonance would either do best as a podcast, or reformatted to be more interview style with appropriate video. Simple things like recording mic's, and less powerpoint-style slides would enhance the quality significantly and increase user learning. I would recommend a storytelling format, which would make an incredible difference in the retention of knowledge and is more applicable to a greater audience, which in turn increases the quality of your advocacy strategy.

Thanks for the great work you guys at USGBC do!

sound quality needs improvement -- voices need EQ and more highs -- sounds like some are reading their part over a phone line
