This is an excellent beginning instructional tool which everyone young and old should be able to navigate and understand. It includes audio and visual screen shots to explain how an Apple computer works. There is a quiz at the end which uses pictures of icons in the sentences to help students that may have trouble with vocabulary. The quiz also tells you if you answered a question wrong or correctly. There are buttons that take you forward, backward, and back home. The audio works on its own but is hard to stop and start. There are no video applications in this program. This is a great resource.

Technical Remarks:

This is a nice simple introduction to Apple computers in general. Since I am a PC user, I'd like to see a similar presentation for those users, maybe students could even compare them.

This should recieve high marks for ease of use. All students need to do is forward and backward. I was a bit confused about the speaker for sound bites, I didn't know that played by themselves (which I really like) I'd think about hiding the icon, but the sound will still play.  This sound, text and pictures make things very easy for students to see and understand. They can see things that are familiar to them and even vocab words of things they may have not known the names to.

Technical Remarks:

There are no external links, all forward, backward and home buttons worked properly.

This is an excellent lesson for those who are teaching students how to use their Apple computer for the first time or as a review tool for those who are somewhat familiar.
