Awesome presentation. Great use of Power Point. In addition to providing an indication of the file's size when downloading, the only way to improve the course would be to add sound. Otherwise, this is a fantastic presentation. I learned something about how to better construct more secure passwords.

Total time: 25-30 minutes

Cory, this is an excellent StAIR. Leaners go through multiple levels of direct instruction, interactive learning and assessment. The format is a superb example of instructional design principles at work.

I love the interactive email activity. I think you keep the learners engaged throughout the entire demonstraction with things like that.

The pacing of this was great. Assessments came at great intervals, which keeps the student from forgetting or feeling overwhelmed. I also like that when a wrong answer is clicked the student is redirected to the content for review.

I think one thing that may help this StAIR is to have audio, perhaps optional audio. 

Technical Remarks:

I noticed just two technical problems:

The animations on slide 18 did not play. So I had to leave the presentation in order to move on, and I missed that content.

The email activity, where the user clicks on each email and is given a reason to open or not, looped and I had to leave the presentation and reenter at the next slide. 

Those are all the problems I noticed!
