This is an informative site that offers various disciplinary perspectives on race throughout time. The interactive elements are fun and effective for breaking up what would otherwise be a text-heavy module. I would have liked more opportunities for interactive exercises that allowed users to "test" the information they just read. This would be a good resource to integrate into any introductory sociology course or course on the sociology of race.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the links in the presentation are broken/cannot be displayed.

I found this site to be unique and FUN. These facts were different than the traditional diversity numbers and statistics. I didn't check the facts and one multiple choice question was not answered but I will check the history, science, etc. books. This is a great presentation form to emulate.

While this wasn't a comprehensive site or module it was a useful resource. It may be better presented as a sub site.

I found this information historically correct and enjoyed the inclusion of relevant pieces of information to support the learning objectives. What some might find troubling is the use of Wikipedia links provided to support various factual details. For those who teach ethnicity concepts; the concluding definitions of race perpetuate the misconception that race an ethnicity are the same. As a Cultural Diversity teacher I will use some of the historical material provided within the modules particularly the recommended links derived from pbs.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use and flexible
