I feel that this was a very good website to go to if you are interested in
learning about eating disorders. It gave a glossary of all of the eating
disorders that there are, which i thought was very helpful.

Technical Remarks:

As I said before I feel that this is a very good website to go to if interested
in eating disorders. I feel that the web site could have been longer and gave a
little more inforamtion.

I spend about 1-1/2 to 2 hours reviewing the website. I went into each
selection and read all of the material. The site was very informative. There
was a large amount of information on specific eating disorders, warning signs,
how to address the problem with the patient so they will be comfortable and
treatment options. I have looked into this topic before and I found the
information quite extensive. Even though I found the site to be a good
information source, I think it is excellent for a family looking for resources
to deal with this problem within their family and not especially directed toward
a teacher/student type situation. I felt it dealt with the problem more on a
personal level.

Technical Remarks:

This website was extremely easy to navigate. I quickly found all of the
information I was looking for. I believe that first-time users will not have a
problem looking through this site. It is very self-explanitory

I spent about an hour looking through the site. I thought the site was very
informative and easy to understand. Although I thought it was a great site.
I'm not sure how well it would be used from a teaching aspect, but it can be
learned from.

Technical Remarks:

I think first times users will have no problems at all with this site.
Everything is in the open and very accessible.
