Experiment with presentation tempo

I recorded the presentation for our topic module on recording presentations at normal speed and with the tempo increased by 15%.
Listen to both versions.

Do you think the faster version would be as effective as the slower one?

Get two friends to watch the presentations -- one at normal speed and one the faster speed. Watch them as they watch the video -- did one pause or replay parts more than the other?

Ask each to summarize the content after they finish watching. Did one do a better job than the other? Which one?

Based on your observations, would you say that one version is better than the other? Which one? Why?
