Those are indeed flaws I thought would be fleeting enough to not matter, but noting them and fixing them could be a useful part of the lesson.
I think so. I suppose some care would need to be taken to emphasize the learning point, otherwise students would just see a flawed tutorial and think... 'Why am I fixing their problem!?!' hehe
There is a lot of merit to exercises that emphasize problem solving by presenting the problem and then pointing people toward the solution. It certainly helps people build a framework for resolving their own problems.
In this particular case a few alternatives could be offered:
- Adjust the path
- Scale the Model
- Scale the Terrain
(Explore your own custom solution)
Share the results with others in the A:M Forum.
Added: This type of approach would also be a good way to gauge whether the student has in fact actually resolved the problem.
If their resulting video still has the pass-throughs (or whatever error was purposefully placed in an exercise) they have not yet succeeded in completing the exercise.
