This site offers modules focusing on different aspects of psychology. The authors described it this way, "This site is designed to teach about psychological processes in a rich experiential setting. But we don't want to be dull and boring along the way. Cheesy? Sure! Silly? No doubt! Stuffy? Never!!! Asking ridiculous rhetorical questions? Guess I'll plead no contest there!" This site was selected as the 2005 Classics Award Winner of the Psychology Discipline because it provides a diverse... More

I enjoyed the author's humor. I believe students would relate to the easy, non-threatening tone of this material.

I though that this learning object was ok. I admit I did not spend time going through all of the available lessons, but I was not excited with the several I observed and it felt like a bad video game- cool concept but it just doesn't run smoothly or feel like you paid top dollar for it. In some lessons it was informative, interactive and easy to use, but I felt that most were composed too quickly and that fewer lessons with more quality would be better. Overall I liked the idea but I think that it fell a bit short in its goals. It would probably not be something that I recommend to my students for further learning but it has potential.

Technical Remarks:

It has several animations that make visualizing the concepts easier. It is hard to navigate because there are too may links at the bottom. The simulations were "ok" but could be much better/ faster/ visual oriented. The lecture/Presentation material was ok because it has lots of great information in it but it also has some distracting dialogue as well.

I thought this site provided lots of useful information about the different minds. It has interesting stories and information about the minds and why certain things are the way they are.

This is a great site for exploring the mind. This site distinguishes different
divisions of the mind and provides stories, information, and "adventures" which
makes learning fun! I love how interactive this site is! It is great!

Technical Remarks:

I love how interactive this site is. It is not black and white and boring like
some sites can be.
