I thought this was a very good lesson on using Google Calendars. It was organized and sequential, gave a good amount of information and did not go too fast. It was presented in an easy to understand way and had practical examples of the benefits of Google Calendar.

The StAIR itself was visually appealing and used bubbles, zooming and other effects to draw the users focus to the task at hand.

Technical Remarks:

This lesson runs fine and has no noticable technical flaws.

This lesson was very appropriate for students as well as adults. I personally just started using google calendar and I learned some things. I liked the big "bubbles" that were shown that explained things. I also thought it was appropriate to have the pauses, because it took me a while to process the information.

Technical Remarks:

Everything worked great!

Great lesson on using Google calendar. Very appropriate for students as well as adults new to using the calendar function. I especially like the "pauses" for the user to think and click on the parts of the calendar as they were being discussed. This would be helpful for users who need a little more time to process the info or take notes.

Technical Remarks:

Everything worked well for me!

Time spent reviewing site: I reviewed it twice for about 10 minutes each.
