I enjoyed this StAIR. I think it has a simple, scaffolded approach to defining UX to someone who is not familiar. The examples that are outside of the HCI and computer design fields help to relate the content to the profession.
I do think that some audio may help, just when considering accessibility.
The interface is easy to navigate for students. Moving through the content is fluid and the narrative makes complete sense.
The one portion I thought could have some more guidance was the chart about the parts of UX design. This chart was very text heavy and students could get lost with out any guidance. Perhaps a graphic, a screen cast walking students through the visual or some call outs might help to make it more digestable.
The assessment is adequate and a nice review of the content. I was suprised when I got the fill the blank question correct, as the answer seemed almost to simple and intuitive.
