The information is accurate and up-to-date; however, the only visual provided is a picture of a torso that the student can apply leads to. All the information is through audio. Visual learners will struggle with the presentation of the material. Unless the instructor/student has access to audio, this activity cannot be used.

Students need prior knowledge of the electrical conduction system of the heart.

Intuitive and interactive tutorial, the lesson was easy to follow. The presentation is precise and well organized, regarding the placement of the 12 Lead ECG.  Audio and visual interactive material assists in complete comprehension of lead placement. A comparison of the 12-lead ECG placement and 5-lead ECG placement was presented, as it is an essential skill needed in the healthcare field. Very effective teaching tool if the participant already has a basic knowledge of human anatomy. Targeted specifically to individuals working in the healthcare field. 

Technical Remarks:

It would be great if a method to pause or replay areas was provided for participants.

Voice of narrator is very monotone. Would suggest some interaction capability while narrator is speaking (show what the narrator is referring).

Technical Remarks:

More should be done with technology available to promote interactivity. There is just one graphic that remains stagnant throughout the lesson.

It would be nice if the user could start, stop, rewind, fast forward the audio. Content is accurate and presented very well, but the navigational elements of the tool are lacking.

Information is valuable and correct. The audio and the correct placement activity for a 12 lead ecg recording is entertaining. The activity has little to do with the actual 12 lead QRS configurations described in the audio and the ability to visualize the normal 12 lead ecg morphology.
