Very well done. A great feature is the "voice-over" example in the Paraphrasing Pointers section; it is a great way of demonstrating the hard-to-communicate concept of "light paraphrasing."
While I haven't used this in a library instruction classroom, I plan on introducing it to our subject faculty and passing it on to their students. As part of our new information literacy program, we will be offering academic honesty "workshops"; I'd like to have subject faculty require their students to complete this tutorial before the workshop, so they will get more out of the experience. I'll also recommend that they bookmark it for easy reference while doing research and citations. Excellent resource!
My only complaint with this tutorial is the audio. While the "voice-overs" are a very creative and helpful feature, I find the rest of the sounds distracting. Still, this is a small price to pay for using a high-quality tutorial.
