There were a lot of sound issues with this course that made it difficult to understand the material. 2 of the 3 presenters had very bad recordings. One presenter was also very monotone. I had numerous problems with streaming. There was a consistant problem with streaming the shorter modules (less than 3 minutes long).

Well paced and informative.

Section Leader, ecoPreserve - Building Sustainability

Very comprehensive but I needed a lot of coffee to stay focused!

Since some of the concepts and terms are new to v4, I felt like they rushed through it a bit. I would have liked a few examples of things. For instance, show the difference between an EPD and a HPD.

Overall presentation could be more engaging. Found it long and difficult to hold attention. Visual and verbal presentation had good content but needed more engaging approach.

The slides were well produced, but the course was rushed (250 slides in a 1.5-hr course), the audio from the speakers was poor (volume too low), and one of the speakers (Steve Baer) was a poor presenter (monotone, reading vs. presenting). The moderator presented well.

It was very difficult to hear and understand the two men who were speaking. I rated it down for this purpose.

Designer II, Meadowlark Builders

A touch too fast. Perhaps offering a printable or editable pdf where one can take notes. Like it would have blanks to fill in based on the lecture.

Designer, Wincome Management & Development
4

This webinar was extremely informative and well structured for maximum digestion.

4

great content - would suggest that viewer download copies of slides to take notes before beginning; there is so much information, perhaps have several summary and review points rather than just one at the end. I am an Interior Designer so I appreciated having this emphasized separately.

5

Comprehensive and well-organized course - Thank you!

Fentress Architects

This was agonizing to sit through. Presentation 101 rule #1: DO NOT READ FROM THE SCRIPT/SLIDE. Unless the script was written to be "spoken". Which this one was not.
The content was useful, but lost in the poor quality of presentation.

Building Equipment Scientist, Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Great course and excellent material presentation,

More examples would be good

really good

Environmental Program Manager, Department of Justice

one presenter is a kind of reading from the materials with same tone, and not explain much to the listener to make it an interesting subject.

2

The presenters read from the notes too much, and their sounds is not very good (via phone link perhaps?)
