A student talks to the researcher about how they used video and YouTube features on the GeoSciTeach app during their experience at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew.
Interviewer: So were there any other bits on the app that you tried out.
Student: I tried out. I tried the descriptions thing, describing the plants, you know the area the atmosphere, the place.
Interviewer: Now would you have thought about that if you hadn’t had the app
Student: Um no (laughs)
Interviewer: What about the video. Did the video help you at all?
Interviewer: So what did you do with the video?
Student: I like…you know the big stuff the big plants I took a video of them, because I couldn’t fit the picture in to the you know camera.
Student: So I used the video to video the whole thing.
Interviewer: Ok. So we had a bit of trouble with one of the youtube videos.
Student: Yeah it wasn’t loading. I think it was the network.
Interviewer: But did you watch it? Was that helpful?
