Usage - Have not used in the classroom, but I find the delivery of the content to be more appropriate for web-based learning.

Ease of Use - Content is very easy to use, although abit lengthy and too wordy.

Prior Use - I have not personally used this tutorial, but I have developed tutorials discussing similar content.

Accuracy of Content - Found content to be accurate and reliable for the content discussed.

Technical Remarks:

I found the fonts to be too small and the content appeared to be aligned to the left-side of the page.

Overall a clean layout and pleasant viewing experience. Tutorial loaded extemely well using Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome browsers. Quizzes and pop-ups add a nice level of interactivity, however the tutorial itself I found to be very lengthy in nature to be viewed in web browser.

Suggestions:

Create separate (mini-tutorials) for easier comprehension for students.

Align (center) the content on the page and increase the font size for greater visibility.
