I found it very useful in bringing all the ideas from the past videos together in a summary” (Alison Thomas) “I thought the vids were great because they were extremely structured and organized. DEFINITELY helps on analysis… the textbook can tell us about all the info and background, but having analysis from you that we can make notes on is really great. Certainly helps me understand further how to make a thematic link at the end of the essay.” (Lauren Maneschi)
  12. 12.   “I don‟t know how this could be improved but I think the time it takes to download is a bit problematic. It‟s not an issue at all for class time, but it is a problem at home where there isn‟t access to the school‟s drives.” (Chloe Gracie) “I didn‟t like the focus on one specific HSC question, I would prefer to get all of the notes down and then talk about the HSC question .” (Edmina Smith)
