Refining and Planning

After learning the art of the elevator pitch and developing a general approach, our group split up to work on the details of our pitches individually. Using statistical data and a persuasive argument, two of our members presented theirs in class. Some great points were made about citing statistics, giving specific facts, showing enthusiasm, and being as clear and concise as possible. We recorded the valuable constructive criticism of our peers in order to optimize our pitch for the video to be put on YouTube. We also scheduled a time to discuss releasing our survey and developing a fundraiser to present next class. It is important that we get the survey out as soon as possible so that we can improve our elevator pitch as well as move a step closer to making the actual tutorial videos. The fundraiser will be vital for reimbursing our hardware and software purchases and contributing to the class as a whole.
