well done

A thorough overview of this Credit Category. The slides would be, well, more synergistic, if they weren't mostly single icons or single statements, but instead showed more clearly how the concept being discussed relates to other Credits or Credit Categories.

Very informative

Overall the course was great but Elliot Allen seemed underprepared for the video and his tone was very dry. This would have been considerably more visually interesting with pictures from actual sites showing compliance.

The sound of the mp3 of the course have some problems.

Could these be split into smaller sections? I didn't have the power to stay awake, but I did try hard :)

This course was great because it explains the main goals and requirements of LT credits giving practical examples, that will surely help us to better understand the requirements when checking the reference guide.

I find this course very interesting, very useful to learn about this new catergory LT.

Section on innovative credits, pilot credits, etc. was irrelevant to the rest of the course.

This video helps me understand the v4.

excellent

This course was jammed packed with information.
Despite the numerous slides, I still felt like the details were rushed.
Seems like with 197 slides, more detailed information could have been presented rather than just said.

Some of the presenters were reading/talking quite fast and it was somewhat difficult to understand the technical aspects.

Good review. Would have been very useful when studying for the LEED Green Associate Exam.

Maybe a little fast on delicate parts. For me more slides may be relevant

Women presenters were clear, concise and quick to cover the topics. The man could have used a bit more practice... Beyond that, good material.

BIM Manager, Innoworx Engineering Design

The course has provided a good knowledge of the LT credit rating system and was presented well.

Architect, The Beck Group
3

The comments and information provided on the ID, RP and IP categories are such a great and useful to complement our knowledge; but the LT information is the reference guide itself, not additional knowledge.

4

Eliot Allen is knowledgeable, but not a dynamic speaker.

4

good breakdown of the credits, bullet points of actions to complete the credits are helpful.

Sustainability Advisor, Vesta Consulting
3

More internation tips would be handy as these particular credits are very US-specific.
Also, more visual information would have made this course more interesting. LT category can be easily illustrated by some "best practice" that everyone should learn about.

4

Integrative process steps and description do not address situations where an owner or developer has already committed to a project site as opposed to situations in which a project team can advise &/or identify a project site.

Good presentation

I am consistently disappointed by the unwavering tendency of the USGBC to consider ID+C education as simply a "lite" or "aferthought" add on to an otherwise BD+C project. It deeply disregards the quite disparate natures of the two project types' possible spheres of influence and site restrictions. However, this was otherwise a well presented course with a respectable level of detail--not enough to make you an expert, but enough to give you a solid foundation in the Innovation and LT credit areas of LEED v4.

Nice detail and great synergies between credits.

The slides didn't advance in the last third of the session.

Principal, Jonathan Vincent Architect, LLC

On slide 9/15 "publically" should be "publicly." On slide 14/15 it should read "what do the base ratios...", not "does." Otherwise, presentation was fine and clear.

seems like a lot of information at a rapid pace, and I had to stop and back up the presentation frequently to be sure I understood what was being said.

Good.
