This is a visual dictionary for American Sign Language containing numerous "everyday" signs as well as the categories of "religious signs" and "phrases". There is also a special section called "ASL for Babies" to tap into the idea of teaching babies to sign as a way to communicate before they can speak. 

This site is fairly usable - it requires Flash to be installed in a browser, and apparently has trouble with Internet Explorer. Some technical knowledge may be required. There is also a mobile app which I did not review. The site shows videos connected to a dictionary - users can search for a word or browse the available words and watch the videos to see the signs in action. There may be some technical difficulties for those who do not have Flash or those who use only IE. Navigation is a bit tricky - I found myself just going back to the main home page all the time by clicking the ASL PRO.com image on the top of the page. 

The only concern that I have is with the QuizMe! part of the site. This allows the user to be quizzed on signs in the EveryDay or Religious phrases categories. The user can pick how many words they wish to be quizzed on, but there is no way to otherwise choose a set of words - this picks from the entire category. This would be good for those who have used the entire site or who may be more advanced. 

There is another quiz area where students can pick to be quizzed on categories of signs such as animals, food, etc. This may be a more useful quiz area for instructors in lower level signing classes. 

Overall, I believe this will be a useful tool for students to learn new signs and review signs that they have learned. This may be useful as an additional resource for students in an ASL class, as a homework assignment, or for in-class practice.
