    • after the success of the Kin 241 lab videos, it seems to be a good idea to film more for other Kin courses with a lab component (142, 303, 407)
    • it will be helpful for prospective students, new students and for current students trying to pick classes
    • meeting with the prof of the class to film the videos all at once may be easier than getting students to do it in class
    • currently the department is working on making profiles for each of the Kin Research Labs
