I liked that the information was direct and to the point.  The material is simple and easy to understand.  It is appropriate for the target audience.

This looks like it would be very helpful for my communication disorders students. I especially like the activities for examining nerves and the links at the bottom of the page. All look very useful in helping students to master cranial nerve content. Students really enjoy hands-on activities. The photos also add to the interest level of the material.

Very good presentation I can see where undergraduate nursing students can benefit tremendously from this presentation. Graduate students would benefit more from this presentation if there was an assessment (how to assess each CN) section.

Technical Remarks:

The hear it section is very good addition for freshman students who are not yet familar with the language.

I really like how simple the site was, everything is neatly put into a chart with the names of the nerves and accompanying pictures. The one thing that I would suggest is having a column for describing whether the nerve is sensory, motor, or both. I particularly liked the "test your cranial nerves" section, and believe that it can be a fun interactive activity for students of any age (as I have done these tests in my nursing classes and found the activity both fun and helpful in learning and assessing the cranial nerves).

Technical Remarks:

I did not come across any technical problems.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about 25 minutes on the site.
