The site was very user friendly. No difficulty experienced in getting to the point of the assignment, The material was also quite relevant and I have already used it in my classroom.
There were no technical issues. It is noteworthy that the format of this material places the onus on the student to select an appropriate movie, evaluate it and report back to classmates. This approach fosters student engagement.
