Agenda Items (please add):

* Janet - half students enfuriated by video materials
  - less homework stress when flipped, but reviews submitted after the class were negative about taking an "online class" at a face to face location - one issue was that the hws for the 2nd half of the videos were not used, and then there was an exam related to the videos - and they had to catch those up in a rush at the end.
  - Janet wishes she'd done more quizzes in the 2nd half
  - Janet gets some evals where students say "I learnt alot but I taught myself" and then gets a low grade for herself
  - Rose - did well having a short quiz at the beginning of each class - anything not understood on the quiz was looked at immediately - addressed more as a lab course - and that helped reduce that criticism.
  - Richard - I think it helps to get support from the administration
  - Janet - interviewed 33 students?
  - Rose - meet for two hours twice a week in a computer lab
  - Janet - now at Colorado College and will be doing 3.5 weeks bootcamps - expectations are very different
  - Janet - starting again in mid to late October (block 3)

* Armando - questionbank

* MOOC update
  - week 5 is live 
  - hw5 is live (now called Acceptance Unit Test Cycle)
  - pairing peer review
  - ongoing video work
  - mechanics of pairing (rose - filtering communities of pairing)

* AgileVentures Karma

* Project tracking

* Udemy - could we work out some way to charge more for the course at edX, by charging for walkthrough videos? - do we want lots of additional walkthroughs ...


Armando working on splitting Berkeley class into project course and non-project course
Students often say the learning in the project section is higher

Armando: possible scheduling -

* Udemy

Action Items

* (Sam) write up a report on the pairing
* (All) what walkthroughs would we like (janet wants text versions)
