Overall, this STAIR is extremely informative. It provides a very good understanding of the necessary requirements for receiving a work permit following graduation. It is presented in a way that makes logical sense and helps the viewer work through a difficult process. There is a great deal of depth and the questions that are asked help the students recall the information that they have learned.

At times, this STAIR seemed like it had a lot of content on each individual slide. Information could be spread out throughout the presentation to help students break down important information. Visuals and videos could be used to explain some of the processes (as well as blank versions of the documents). This would be helpful for all different types of learners. Links to outside resources would also be helpful. Finally, more feedback would be nice when a student clicks on an answer. It is nice to know why the answer is right or wrong.

Technical Remarks:

The presentation works exceptionally well. It is provided in the proper format and does not have any major technical issues.
