Once it loaded, the material is quite good. Easy for the students to understand. The loading time was a distraction.

This is a great introductory site for using the Internet. Many definitions and basics are given. Students could easily follow the directions on the hunt.

Technical Remarks:

There were a couple links I couldn't open. The movie did not work, but I would have liked to see it!
Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes

Good introductory information on using search engines. I would be reluctant to use this in the classroom because the slides did not reflect the quality and design elements that I expect my students to produce in their own projects.

Technical Remarks:

I felt the delivery method used current technology and didnÂ’t take too terribly long to display on a high speed connection.

I tried to be patient for the PPT animation to download but it was taking so long, I gave up. Will try another time. The author was considerate to indicate on the first screen how long the presentation lasted.

Technical Remarks:

Seems to need a fast fast internet connection and fat bandwidth for the download.
