I attempted to access the learning object using Firefox 15.0.1 on a Mac running OX 10.8.2.  Because this file is an executable it will not be able to be run on a Mac unless the user is running a Windows emulator.

Technical Remarks:

If possible the learning object should be converted into a cross-platform compatible format such as Flash.  Tools such as Captivate, Lectora and Articulate all create tutorials that allow for cross-platform compaitibility.

I really liked the layout which was very user friendly, but had a couple of hiccups with the links. When you click on a year (reference in material) it takes you to the reference page of the site, but there is no "back" button to take you back to where you were. Kind of bothersome but not insurmountable. The other was the links for the examples. According to the instructions, it should have taken me to a page to see the example, but nothing happened.

Very nice work and very easy to follow. Great job overall.

this link goes to a .exe file? Just wondering if that is a mistake or if something got corrupted somewhere.

Funny looking website - at first I thought i was redirected to a wrong site. But then I read the names of articles and they looked good - except the links don't work!!!

Technical Remarks:

Many of the links don't work at all!

The website was easy to access. It was first time user friendly, and I thought
that it was very colorful and caught my attention.

Technical Remarks:

I am not very good with computers, so I very much enjoyed that the buttons were
so self explanatory. Also, I liked that the website was tutorial for teachers
or anyone in a business. It was also a great informational site for
conferences, tutorials, or things that one had missed. It would be very helpful
in a classroom or a business.
Teachers and employers need directions as well, so it was nice to see that they
are easily accessible. I liked this website!
