I think it would have been better to be in different rooms. Do this from home at an assigned time without any commentary from other participants.

It was very faulty and did not work well at all. Our class was very disrupted by refreshing our screens over & over again, only to get simulations that would not work.

ClosduVal_AFaculty 3 5 3 the background and ambiance surrounding each of the speakers It's not really multi-media -- embedding a video against a graphic background is just that. I think you're not taking advantage of the opportunity to actually use multiple approaches to inform and involve the audience 1. Put a link to the pdf case file - ideally, link each portion of the video to a corresponding set of paragraphs in the case. 2. Include some navigable graphics that show Clos du Val label evolution -- even (if possible), a photo of the bottles on the shelf in a grocery store (alongside Clos du Bois, maybe?) 3. Links to the case exhibits, along with an animated graphic of the Clos du Val company timeline. Lots of opportunities to embed background photos corresponding to the company milestone here. 4. Put in some application to collect viewer opinion via survey -- and then give the viewer an opportunity to view their opinions alongside the historical opinions of former students (kind of like the data collection in the Kalashnikov case) 7. Links to articles in wine journals 8. Probably not legal, but wouldn't it be cool if you could click on a link and order a bottle or case of Clos du Val during the presentation? I know I was craving some Pinot... 9. Maybe even show a little of the wine-making process. 9/9/2008

I would prefer more content in the 1 day approach. That you have the option to hide the teaching notes. It places the professor in an awkward position - although I create my own solutions, I use the teaching notes heavily. Some of the students think that because they are supplied, they should have access to them.

Required Rate of ReturnStudent 4 5 5 It was all good! The optional module on why to use after-tax cost of debt has a very misleading example. The after-tax income in the no tax scenario does not have the interest expense of $100 subtracted. Therefore the student sees higher after-tax income without an interest deduction ($600), than with the interest deduction ($540). If you sutract the $100 of interest from the $600 then you have after-tax income of $500, which is $40 worse than the $540 WITH the interest tax deduction. Then you can say that the true cost of the interest payments is $100-$40= $60, which is the same answer shown at the top of your slide, but the derivation is much more intuitive (to most students, I believe). or you can say that the interest deduction (or the tax shield) is worth $40, which is the excess of $540 over $500. What I just wrote above. 12/3/2007

Used Car Market V2Student 5 5 4 After reviewing the results it is interesting how poorly we performed on the first exercise when compared to getting a bit of instruction on the second - performance greatly improved. Whitnessing the strategy that was being applied - incorrectly - by making assumptions during the first exercise.

PlayStudent 4 2 3 Virtual tour I was confused with so many instructions. There were to many words even before I start to navigate. When I clicked "where to start", it was not an icon to initiate the case, but was another instruction. From my standpoint, the case needs to have a sort of animated flow scheme that leads audience to navigate through a logical structure. Also, even though the virtual tour was an interesting tool, it needs to have more features. For example, I expected to be able to enlarge the small pictures of facility by clicking, but couldn't. And there was no linkage between video clip and the number shown at the perspective of Play's office building. It seems more efficient to allow audience navigate the facility by clicking the number on the perspective diagram of the building and show the video clip tied to the location. - Highlight the active selection - Change the color of the sections previously visited by the audience; it helps them to see how much they have seen and not seen - There is not much music.. in the selction of Play's deliverable... people were drawing pictures on the wall and I wanted to hear some music, but didn't. - Text reading (as replacement for video clips..): fonts were small to read. This can be fixed by adding a tool to enlarge it - Same video clips were showing again and again in different sections: "that's cute. we'll see if it really applies. 3/13/2007

Hershey Foods Corporation -- Bitter Times in a Sweet PlaceFaculty 4 4 1 The biggest problem I had with this case is that the student version is different from the instructor version on this CD. I don't know which is the correct version. Both have the same case number. Based on this CD, I decided to use this case in my MBA class. My course pak is done by, so I don't actually see the cases - I give them the case titles and numbers and they take care of copyrights and distribution to the students. The case the students have includes a set of cash flows, while this is one of the outputs for the instructors' version. In addition, the instructors' version has additional exhbits about the composition of the board which are not part of the students' case. Also, the financial case exhibits do not contain the ssme numbers - close, but not identical. There should be only one version of this case. 3/29/2005

Before the last decision, you should indicate that one has only time to talk with two people before making the decision.

BETStudent 5 4 5 Integrated environment: mixing tables, text and video offers a powerful learning experience. Well done! We at Darden should pursue this with more vigor - we may end up being the premier case provider of tomorrow's top programs! One time, after closing the program and re-entering it at a later time, I had to reboot in order to get the video to show. I am concerned about the consistency of presentations across multiple platforms. We could really hook the next generation of business school students if they knew that we hid "bonus material" in a few obscure places on within the presentation. Silly, but true - people love the challenge of finding the hidden stuff. Darden could sell a bundle of this stuff to other schools: the pull would be from the students once they experienced the different learning environment, while the push would be to the faculty and administration. Wahoo! Let's do it! I'm a DV video and web site development geek, sign me up. 1/30/2005

BETStudent 4 3 3 Fascinating interviews. Great personal insights. Makes the case come to life. I spent far too much time downloading all of the tables into an Excel file. Instead, all of the data should be available from one button for complete download into one Excel file. If you clicked on any of the links twice by accident, you lose the ability to see the video portion. Instead, you only hear the interview. This happened to me two times and I had to eject the CD and restart it to see the videos. 1/29/2005

McCollStudent 5 5 5 Heavy on the video, especially in this sort of case (M&A), where personalties are everything. Nothing bad-best multimedia case I've had at Darden. None 2/19/2004
BETStudent 5 3 4 Nothing compares to hearing the story from the people who created it. Also, the contrast between the incredibly intelligent, articulate business people running BET and many of the images that might be associated with its content is important. Having to manual launch each segment - some of the clips are 45 sec and I would have to click next again and again. Couldn't download spreadsheets together. I would like a "Launch presentation" command that runs all the exhibits as a slideshow and then I can pick to rerun specific segments later. Download spreadsheets as book. Also, I think it would be REALLY beneficial to have more than a montage of programs. I don't think they help give the uninitiated an idea of what BET programming looks like. A longer clip or scene might be more helpful. 2/19/2004

BETStudent 5 4 4 I think the multi-media case gave those individuals who were not familar witht the BET product a great context for the case discussion. The worst part of the multimedia was going through the different spreadsheets. Capture all of the spreadsheets in one workbook. 2/16/2004

BETStudent 5 5 5 1/21/2004
BETStudent 5 5 5 I actually thought that the written case was the best I've read so far at Darden- when I read it, I didn't even know there was a CD. Everything fit together seemlessly, and there was no extraneous information. A superb case. 1/21/2004
BETStudent 5 5 5 This was one of the most interesting and engaging cases I have encountered in my tenure at the Darden School. In fact, it ranks in the top 5% of the hundreds of cases I have seen thus far. By connecting multimedia with the case data, the user becomes extremely engaged in the story of the company, its founder, and the issues both parties have faced in the past, deal with in the present, and will encounter in the future. The format of the CD was logical, the flow was easily followed, and the content was top notch. It was facisinating to hear the BET story not only from Bob Johnson, but also from his current leadership team. To summarize, this case has far exceeded my expectations and should be a model for the creation of future cases via the Darden Press. The data tables that are located throughout the application are helpful, but everytime you want to download the information, you get a new spreadsheet. Perhaps a document containing all the data found throughout the CD should be consolidated and offered as document at the end of the application. This would be a format similar to that which first years download daily from myDarden. Outside of the case data suggestion listed above, no chages should be made to the application. This case is OUTSTANDING!!! 1/21/2004
BETStudent 5 5 5 This is my first multimedia case. I liked how the interviews were broken down into smaller 1 to 2 minute chunks, which made it easier sitting throught the whole case. I also liked the intro video. The videos were almost all interviews. Would have been nice to see other footage and video clippings about BET. Add more interesting trivia. Such as "Did you know's" and insider info. More BET content and clips from shows would be nice too. 1/17/2004

The only drawback to the case would be that of the length and the time having spent watching the videos. however, if the user was interested in the material this would not be a problem.

EnronAlumni 3 CD1-2/CD-24 CD1-3/CD-24 CD1-I found it fascinating to watch the corporate executives of Enron discuss their successes and plans for future growth. If they had any hint of potential failure, it sure did not come through when watching this CD./CD-2I thought that Sam Bodily and Bob Bruner were a good team and the chemistry was apparent. The delivery was polished and presented at a good pace. CD1-I felt that good instructions were severely lacking. One is thrown into viewing CD 1 and forced to utilize a trial and error strategy in determining the best order in which to review the materials./CD-2I felt that many keys points/assumptions were made without strong examples to back up those conclusions. For example, if Enron's structure allowed it to exploit imbalances in the marketplace in order to create trading profits, an example of how the actual math worked to create the aforementioned profit opportunity would have driven home the point in a much more intellectually satisfying fashion. CD1-As stated above, I would provide users with clearer instructions as to the best manner in which to review the material on CD 1. This change would eliminate any guessing or uncertainty on the part of the user. I liked CD 1 but it could have been more user friendly./CD-2Again, I would like detailed explanations outlined in exhibits that back up the reasons stated by Bodily and Bruner for the success and ultimate failure of Enron. For example, show why the accounting structure for a Special Purpose Entity made it an advantageous vehicle for Enron to employ. CD 2 held my interest but I feel that the improvements covered above are necessary if the goal is to successfully convince alumni to pay a reasonable fee for this type of product. peter. 7/29/2002 Microsoft Internet Explorer MSIE 5.5 yes both 49 yes 49 yes

At one point when it was noted I thought of (1) Musollini who drained the swamps and (2) made the trains run on time. And the Nazi doctors who froze and chopped up people, and maybe learned something. I think that the CD unintentionally reflects the complete Amoral environment, not only of the Darden School, but of Graduate Business Schools in General. CD1-The whole thing (CD1 & CD2) is too long for me. I looked at probably 40% of CD1 and 80% of CD2. It turns out that CD1 is really not needed for CD2./CD-2As I note in the answer to 5b, the general problem cannot be fixed by "sanding and shaping" CD2.
