Student Interviews

These five students volunteered to be interviewed about their decision between traditional and blended versions of the chemistry 101 or 102 courses.   They knew in advance the general type of questions they would be asked.  Student lab assistants did the interviews without the presence of the course instructor.  All five students gave verbal and signed permission to have their interviews used in presentations and on the web.  These video clips are brief and unedited for content (editing only to improve audio).
