This StAIR module is an interactive learning tutorial on the topic of symbols in the academic study of religion. It discusses universal, iconic and metaphoric symbols and provides examples of each type. It could be used as an introduction to this topic or a reinforcement of it. Students are asked to answer questions within the module and are given feedback on their choices. It also provides some information beyond the direct answers themselves.
This project is set up very well. There are a lot of visual aids as well as audio to help the learner learn/review these different types of symbols. The layout and design are not intimidating to the learner. I was not overwhelmed with information. The links were a very helpful supplement to the audio to help understand the material. Overall I think students would definitely benefit from this project
Great use of links, didn't rush the student

This StAIR is well put together with a large amount of information that is subdivided well. The large amount of lecture text is reinforced with a reading by the author at a pace that is deliberate and measured. I like the structure of lecture information for one section followed by an evaluation question. All the answers to the questions give rich feedback to the student.
The use of images is particularly deft, not only complimenting the information, but visually carving up the large amount of text.
Compatible with my copy of Office 2008 for Macintosh (thanks!)
