Quality of content is average.  While easy to use, fun and quick way of looking at potential issues related to breathing difficulties, the content is superficial.   With little effort, the content could be improved by adding information to deepend the understanding behind the symptom and potential issue.  Similarily, if the student answers incorrectly, information to educate why it is a wrong choice would be beneficial to the learning process.  The tool may cause students to memorize symptom to diagnoses without adding critical thinking skills.  

Technical Remarks:

Good visual, but does not add to the understanding of the content.  Just a fun way to illustrate progress in questions.
