The teacher answers questions people are asking:

  • The video you see is un-edited - what you see is what the students saw in class.

  • He used Adobe Premier and After Effects to create the on-screen video.

  • Yes, he practiced about 20 times to get the timing right. But yes, he also had audio cues that helped a lot. You can't really hear it in the YouTube video, but there is a "whooshing" sound right before the icon flies out of the window.

  • The classroom holds 125. He has 121 students in one section, and 60 in another. The class is a basic mathematics class for non-math majors. The topic for that day in class was basic trigonometry, they only do one day of trig, and the rest of the class is a broad overview of other areas of mathematics (algebra, probability, statistics, history of math, even one day about calculus).

  • He teaches at Biola University in La Mirada. Film professor John Schmidt taught him some of the editing techniques he used.
