Method: This material was reviewed as a training exercise for a class.
Technical: The material was tested in Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer, but not Safari
Time Spent Evaluating: 2 1/2 to 3 hours
Quality of Content: The material was easy to understand and instructions for the user were clear, but IE distorted the page on my laptop and made it impossible to read. The survey tab gave me an error message.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool: Specific data could be located easily, making this a good teaching tool. More questions in the interactive test base would make this tool more effective for classroom use.
Ease of Use: The voice over is a nice touch, however; the site is beginning to look dated by 2014 standard. The interface needs to be refreshed to keep it looking current.
Overall: This is a great online tool for learning about credible methods of business research. It receives a 4.5 rating from me after averaging all three domains.
