The animation is interesting. However I feel it is a little hard to diferentiate the molecules and ions. Maybe they should have label the atoms for clarity.
Used in course

A good illustration of the process of salt disolving into water. There are no lables on the water or salt molecules nor is any audio or written description on the animation, so the teacher will have to supply the background and verbal description to students to ensure understanding.

This would be very useful in the classroom. I would use this be inserting it into a powerpoint presentation. I would play the video and explain to the students what was going on. I also like the fact that you can get a closer look, as well as getting a look at the solution.

Animation of solute (NaCl) dissolving in a solution (H20). Animation could use more information. Molecules/Particles could be labeled, as could the bonds formed/broken.
