I spent 2-3 hours browsing through a variety of good material that I thought
could be useful for several courses in an interior design program.

The materials I found were all under “civil engineering”. Finding the material
could have been difficult and possibly discouraging to a regular student.
However, once you got a feeling for how the site works, navigating it was fine.
The site itself is treated as a building/engineering/architectural site but it
is quite informative for faculty and students in an interior design program of
study. I never got to the earthquake demonstration; it would have taken another
2 hours.

If used appropriately, the site has the potential of enhancing teaching and
learning. Teaching because of the resources available in a single site,
learning because of the richness of the material.

First time users will find the site friendly and useful; however, people doing
research may find that it needs to be cataloged differently to prevent one from
diverting and jumping among the different subject matters.

The Content of this website is appropriate for the earth science curriculum; its
presentation is clear and represents a get-to-the-point style. The website is
full of graphic illustrations with textual explanation,to help learner to
understand topics easily. The depth and accuracy of the material is impressive.
A practical teaching tool for web learning.

Technical Remarks:

The website is very user-friendly, its effective using of graphics successfully
enhances learning experience. The website is text-directed, without navigation
bars, instead, it contains links full of graphic descriptions. It would be
nicer if it could also includes video files and more audio files to make it a
real multimedia web learning source.
