Pros

  • Simple introduction to using information about the mouse's location to draw an object
  • Clear explanation 
Cons

  • At the time of this review, the video has a bug and stops working about half-way through. The speaker voice is clear but the coding demonstration doesn't continue. This might be great opportunity for your class to work out on their own exactly what the speaker intended to show.
