Quality: Presents valid concepts, and skills necessary for disaster management.  

Clear learning objectives for each module.

Interspersed questions at end of presentation slides to stimulate thinking and group discussion

Ease of Use:  Easy to use software for first time user.  Flexibility:  can stop, replay, or stop and return later.  

Color scheme vivid and attractive to students.

Learning material provides information that is familiar to students.

Potential effectiveness as a teaching-Learning tool: Effective when used for training of health care personnel in disaster preparedness during a series of session spaced by time, not in succession due to possibility of learner overload, and fatigue.  



Technical Remarks:

Video clips very effective to produce recall of recent disaster.

Choice of use as PPT presentation or for independent learning is a plus

Very little technical support required

Time spent reviewing site: 2.5 hours
