(1) In the first half of this seminar, the narration is delivered at too fast a pace for effective learning; whereas in the second half of this seminar, the pace of narration is more leisurely, enabling better learning. (2) This course attempts to deliver an enormous amount of information in 1-1/2 hours. Far better it would be if the delivery of information came at a slower pace, and if the material now covered in only 1-1/2 hours was covered in 2 or 3, separate 1-hour segments. (3) If the USGBC insists on devoting only 1-1/2 hours' time to this Credit, then it would be better if only the salient features of each Credit were treated. This would then allow narration to be delivered at a pact best enabling good learning. (4) Regardless of how the USGBC chooses to present its instructional material, learning would be greatly enhanced, if the first 10% of each seminar consisted of an introduction to all the learning points to be covered in the course, and the final 10% of each seminar was devoted to a comprehensive review of the material covered in the course. As currently presented, these USGBC seminars are all of the "stovepipe school of learning"; that is, course material is presented without a comprehensive introduction, and without a final review -- which prevents these seminars from being the truly fine learning tools they could otherwise be.

This was a wonderful course. Both speakers were great. I would like to see another one on thermal comfort and design with the same speakers.

TOO MUCH INFORMATION TO ABSORB IN 2 HOURS, AND GEW GRAPHICS WHICH COULD BE VERY HELPFUL. DESIGN PEOPLE ARE VISUAL!

A bit lengthy which gets boring since there is no interaction. You listen to someone speak non-stop for an hour and a half, but overall, this information is useful and a great tool for people like me who have experience with filling out LEED data, but don't have much background as to what LEED is as a whole.
All in all - I recommend.
Also, there is no option to go back or forward that I found. Once the video was interrupted, I was not able to go back to my place and had to start it all over. A bit frustrating, but that could just be my computer not giving a skip ahead option. Took 2 hours to complete because of that.

The presentation was a little thick, would like more notes on the slide pdfs

Presenters just reading material is less than engaging. When signing up for a webinar, it is my hope that the webinar will present the material in a way that is better than just reading the manual. This was basically the same as reading a manual.
