Great job! I really loved the incorporation of various multimedia technology and interaction. I also like the questions. I personally ended up learning quite a bit the Great Leap Forward and some it was renewed again! You chose a very timely and intersting topic give China being in the news on a daily basis. It will good to incorporate answeres in your questions, specially when it says "not true" this way the student understands where the mistake occured.

Technical Remarks:

Not sure what is Diigo toolbar. You need to provide more information on this.

Well done.  I really like the program you used and how it guided students through learning the material.  The questions throughout were a great way to assess if student s were learning the material.  It was good that you provided links to extra information for those interested.  I love the variety of things you included--from a google survey to simple multiple choice questions.  There was even an opportunity for free response.

For each question, it would be great if you would provide the correct answer after your answer is recorded.  Program said certain questions were "not true" but it would have been great to know what the actual answer really was.  Also to make this StAIR more accesible, might be good to have more audio options for students that cannot read or struggle in this area.  Also, I am not familiar with Diigo toolbar.  The user would need more information before utilizing this part.



Technical Remarks:

As mentioned above, not familiar with Diigo toolbar.  Needed more information about this program.
