I like the breakdown of the techtonic plates, but really wish there maybe more examples of these. Also, I got booted out after answering the question correctly. I like the objective and purpose are great, but I wish I could have answered more questions to test my knowledge.

Great Job!

I like the way the bullets slowly came up made it easy to read and focus

I also like the images and graphics you uesed

The one thing i didnt like or that didnt work for me is that it kicked me out when i selected the wrong answer but i believe that happened because it wasnt saved in Kiosk mode, maybe reload the ppsx file

This was a great way to acquaint people/students to tectonic plates.  It was good information, but not an overload. I felt it utilized UDL and was a well thought out lesson.
