  • Excellent presentation- funny and engaging. I've been teaching an infocomp (online) course for 6+ years and a librarian for over 15 and this is one of the most effective presentations I've seen. Great colors, graphics, and humorous tone to keep viewers' attention. Thank you for sharing your work! I hope you don't mind that I plan to link to this.... :-)
