The StAir design instructs Students with Cognitive Impairments 18-26 how to open a standard Checking Account. It allows the students to take a quiz to determine weather they are ready to open there very own checking account.
The design is very nice, easy to read and navigate. When looking at the front page there are grammatical errors as well as spelling errors. The fact that you included graphics was great although I think that these could have been labeled for further understanding. When dealing with the disabled, I am curious how the fly in and out effects them…is it confusing? The instruction was basic and to the point for immediate knowledge. It is assumed when viewing this activity that there wasn’t any prior knowledge of banks and checking accounts. If there was, this would act as a review. The quiz was simple with the yes and no answer choices. The last page has a broken link. It says to click to go to next page but it actually doesn’t go anywhere. How do they know when they have completed the task? I would imagine that for these folks with special needs some type of reward for completing the task would be beneficial and enticing. This activity took me approximately 4 minutes.

This presentation provides a step by step explanation of how a checking account works. The target audience is special needs students. The information is basic, and is highlighted with key words. The presentation uses goal oriented design principals that focus on students understanding checking accounts.
The presentation runs as a power point show. A few of the links are quirky, but there is a large amount of valuable content here. Timings and sound are used to help different learning styles.
