Your review for using the Chinese tones was a good resource for students to use during the learning process. It is nice to have the audio there to help with the tones, and the videos towards the end are helpful as well. It would be nice to have some review if the students need more time with the materiall. I worked through the presentation and wanted to go back a step often to make sure I had the material right. Also, I agree that it just ended without any resoltuion of such. While I did learn some new material, I feel the presentation could benefit from a more in depth reveiw of the tones.

Technical Remarks:

The sounds worked for the most part. A couple of them did not seem to work on my computer. Also, linking out to YouTube with all of those videos was nice, but the constant back and forth between the presentation and YouTube was tedious.

Overall, a good resource for simple review of Chinese tones.



Technical Remarks:

I really enjoyed getting the opportunity to learn another language!  You made the tones so clear when you related the tones to English exclamations.  I also really appreciated being able to hear the tones and see them visually.  It made me want to continue and see how much I could learn.  Unfortunately, when I came to the end, I was actually wondering if I did something wrong.  I looked for ways to go back and see if I missed something, but there was nothing.  I would have liked to have known that I was finished.  I also felt this review could have been longer and included more content.

Though you have used the internet to publish your StAIR,  I do not feel you taken full advantage of today’s technologies for interactions within your presentation. You have provided students with clear expectations, explanations, and audio, but you have not challenged or interacted with them in any way.  Also, checks for understanding are not built in to assess whether students are mastering the concepts being taught. I feel if you addressed those two things, you would have a great StAIR.
