Steve, Overall I think this is looks like you took your time in making your design pictures.  The yellow writing a the top of your slides is a little tricky to the eye to read but the point is there.  At first I thought that when I got the question wrong that there was no feedback but you had it linked to another correct one so that made sense.  Otherwise I think its pretty cool but I still don't understand the voltage terminology...glad you are in our class to help us learn more about cars!

Quality of Content

This StAIR presents valid concepts, models and skills that students in the automotive field will find useful. The material can be used for practice or to learn the concept for the first time. There are clear definitions and great visuals to help reinforce the concept of voltage dropping. The feedback on questions, specifically when answered incorrectly, is fantastic. I really like that the presentation goes back through certain slides that will help the student to better understand what they did wrong.

Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching-Learning Tool

There are very detailed drawings to help the student understand the concept presented. These visuals would be especially helpful to someone who was learning the material for the first time. One way to improve effectiveness would be to use a voice-over for some of the incorrect answers to explain a mistake, or to give a general explanation of the main definition at the start of the presentation. Overall, this presentation is appropriate for students at the college level.

Ease of Use

Students can access this from school and or home to grasp the concept. The buttons on each slide are easy to use and the presentation is easy to navigate.
