A signature deliverable from this course is a short oral presentation, which each student crafts and presents individually.

I presented on the topic of choosing a display. By no means is it an exhaustive list of things to look for (I didn't have space to consider connections, for instance), but I am confident that it competently explains the basic concepts that educated consumers ought to have ingrained.

Making the video was a cinch - I only had to narrate my slides in PowerPoint (not too difficult - I just read off my notes from when I actually gave the presentation) and from PowerPoint (2010) itself I could export a video. No muss, no fuss. Everything should be so easy! It also totally obviates all of those YouTube tutorials that take you through re-inventing the wheel, which might still be necessary with earlier editions of PowerPoint.
