I am a fourth year college student. I was instructed by my college professor to join merlot and to review three websites and pick my favorite. This was my selection.
I feel this website was of the highest quality. It provided a vast array of information in an enjoyable manner. The webpages were setup in such a way that you don't realize how much you are learning until you have completed the "lesson". I am currently taking a genetics course at South Dakota State University, and we have or are currently covering many of these topics. I found it much more effective to "view" the experiments rather than merely hear about them. The videos and sound were excellent and I appreciated the animation allowing me to move at my own pace. I was not forced to move through too quickly, or drug along for a long ride.
I believe this site would be beneficial to any student who learns well by seeing and hearing the topic in pictures and sound simultaneously.
I found this site to be extremely easy to navigate. The side menu options are always the best way to go. I appreciated being able to select the next topic quickly. I also thought the tabs on the bottom of the page which allowed the selection of different functions without using the "back" button were efficient.
