Comment: Although this learning material does present a solid memory experimentation program, I feel that the secondary usage of the program is teaching. The main goal of the program appears to be experimentation. I feel that students will not find this material as exciting as expected and that the concepts addressed must be reviewed every step of the way with users (which must be done with supervision as the program does not provide sufficient detail covering concepts). Overall it could potentially be a great tool for student participation in a memory experiment, however as a learning tool on it's own I find it to be only okay.

Technical Remarks:

Experiments were possibly a bit too long to hold the interest of a student attempting to learn about what concept this teaches. A shorter version of the experiments with increased focus on teaching the concepts could provide a better learning object.
