Week 3 Reflections.

So the story, again, I think gets in the way of the learning. I know that you want to engage your student audience but this was a little much, again.

I really liked the Differentiation lesson. One of the things I talk about in my EMTX 1000 course is that being able to distinguish yourself in the market place is absolutely vital, especially in technology. I wish they would have used a technology example more than a B&B because it would have served my class better.

The one I really liked was the Marketing Benefits vs Features. In the EMTX 1000 class when you are promoting either your consulting business or working with your CTO understanding your strengths and marketing them are keys to being successful. I liked this particular module, even though it dealt with pottery, because it was pretty straightforward on what it is you need to do run a successful ad campaign.


  1. Hey, Mark.

    I wonder if eliminating the voice overs in the still shots would help some with the stories in these modules. The comments that each character makes are unimaginative and unemotional. It would be quicker and more engaging for me to read the story myself and add my own inflection to the conversation.

  2. I like the scenarios. I think it makes the example more 'real' even though these are just examples. Sometimes it is difficult to think in terms of how these concepts will help you and affect you if you can't see them 'in action' so to speak.These concept seem like 'common sense' to us, but to our students who are not as well versed in the ways of the world, these concepts may be foreign to them.

  3. You can eliminate the voice overs if you want to. You don't have to wait for the next page to load automatically. Just click on the forward arrow after you have read the captions.
