This was a difficult StAIR for me to review, as I was unable to interact with the video or exlore any of the diagrams. I am not sure of the reason for that, or if something was missing from the presentation. The information on the slides was very thorough, but without the ancillary materials the presentation is obviously limited to a smaller group of learners whose skills lie in reading and recalling. The video aspect would surely add a dimension and help those who are visual and auditory learners. Additionally, I think the interactive diagrams would be great for exploring the human body and its various systems. The quiz section worked well for me, and I liked the combination of visuals and texts. I think one thing (that I have not done either) that might be helpful would be not only a statement of error, but also an explanation of why their answer is not correct. For example, one questions correct answer is all of the above, perahaps if the response acknowledge their answer as partially correct it would help students to find the ultimate answer more quickly. Overall I enjoyed your presentation and wish I could have viewed it in its entire form. It is well designed and pleasant to read and view.

I enjoyed working through this lesson. I thought it was very well done and the content piece is fantastic. I enjoyed the variety of resources used (clips, interactive, text). I also liked the interactive component. It was exciting when you got the answer correct! However, it would be helpful to let students know why their answer was right or why it was not correct.

Another suggestion is to have more audio available. There was a lot of text to read and it may be helpful to have additional audio.

Technical Remarks:

I had a hard time viewing the videos. I had to download extra programs to watch the clips.

Time spent reviewing site: 45 minutes (downloading to make videos work)
