Basically, this is a very simple site. I spent approximately 30 minutes
clicking on different dates that were related to family member's birthdays,
anniversaries, etc. It was interesting to see what happened if anything in the
history of psychology on your birthday. A lot of information is provided. If
you were looking for something specific and had a general idea of when it
happended, you could easily find it.

Technical Remarks:

Very user-friendly. I had no problems using the site. Rather self-explanatory.

I am currently a student member in the merlot community, and used the material
very recently. I used the material in my Social psychology course. It was
submitted as a research project and I enjoyed it very much. It was incredible
how much great hiustorical information there was on this site. It was very
informative and good for research on this day in history.

Technical Remarks:

I had no difficulty while surfing this site and needed no assistance whiule on
this site, I loved it.
