I like the graphics and animation that goes a long with each definition, however, when I attempted to "Go Back" and then re-enter the same term, it did not allow me to view the definition or animation.  Additionally, there seems to be a lot "going on" on the primary page which can be somewhat distracting for some users.  The concept is very addvanced and the graphics are great.

I like the fact that there is animation with each definition I viewed. However, I found it cumbersome to have to back to the beginning if trying to search/look up a definition beginning with a 'different' alphabet than the one you are currently in. Although there is a search box once you select an alphabet, you are limited to search only for terms in 'that' alphabet from that area.

This site is now apparently a subscription-only service. I could not see even a
sample of what is available. There is some procedure to obtain limited access
for a short period of time, but one cannot review any of site without going
through that process.

This was a great usage of annimation but merlot users could not log in with a
general password to evaluate without having to first view annoying ads. Looked
like a very large source for information on many diffrent topics. Wish I could
have viewed it.

This site is just wonderful. It is a great source for the defining of Data
Communications related terms.

Technical Remarks:

The graphics were great. It really makes you want to look and find out more even
if it is irrelevant to what you need.

If there was a rating of 10 I would definitely give it to this site. Excellent
technical dictionary!!! Each definition also includes an animation. Students
seem to enjoy this site...concepts become real.
