This StAIR goes through the topics of classical and operant conditioning. In this StAIR, information is provided in a variety of formats and student must answer questions correctly to proceed through the content.

Technical Remarks:

The StAIR is easy to use although the video didn't work for me and the link to the outside website forced me to start the StAIR over. Because there is so much information to learn over Classical and Operant conditioning I would consider making two StAIRs out it.

This was an effective teaching tool for learning about classical and operant conditioning. The text layout was visually appealing and nice to work with. The UDL principles worked well, and the relearning helpfully brought the viewer back to the original point then to the questions in a way that worked well. Many of the slides had some visuals, but some of the wordier ones could have used something small. However, the slides that were exclusively diagrams were excellent and a needed break from subject matter that has a tendency to be dense. A small mechanical correction to consider would be not to put a period on the end of sentence fragments. Or choose to always use periods, but just be consistent throughout.

Technical Remarks:

Technically this UDL worked well except that the links to the videos were broken.
