Nicely done! You incoporated good use of the technology without over doing it! The quiz worked well. The links worked and the transition from slide to slide went smoothly.  I took 30 minutes to review your presentation and would recommend the resource to others.

Thanks for sharing!

Again you did a really nice job! It looked very polished. I really liked the videos. They were simple, short, and easy to follow. I also liked your rock cycle visual and the clapping sound the added to the quiz section. My only suggestions would be to add more visuals in the begining and consider giving the learner more feedback on why certain answers are incorrect. Other than that it was really well done!

Technical Remarks:

All the technology looked good!
