This website contains a wealth of information, including interactive activities and engaging visuals to explain the material. I went with 4 rather than 5 stars because much of the information has not been updated recently. For example, many of the pages were last updated in Jan, 2004. The majority of the information is still correct and relevant, and it would be nice to have updated statistics on prevalence, incidence, etc.

This webquest designed tutorial is an outstanding resource for many levels of healthcare practitioners, students, and the lay public in formal and informal education settings. The author has created menus that connect the user to links that will provide the level of depth of content that is desired. It is reliable, accurate and current. It appeals to visual and auditory learners and has interactive components.

Technical Remarks:

Techinical requirements include flash and quick time player, current version of adobe.

This site is a great learning tool! It is VERY descriptive and has many graphics
and charts that further enhances the learning experience. It has an abundance
of information including who is at risk for osteoporosis and how to prevent
osteoporosis- information that a student nurse or other healtcare providers can
give to their patients. This site incorporates appropriate information for the
student, doctor, teacher, or person simply curious about osteoporosis.

Technical Remarks:

Very user friendly and well organized.

I spend an hour browsing the site and doing the assignments. They are very
helpful not just for people with osteoporosis. It is helpful for healthcare
provders too. The assignment is a good practice for knowing what to do for a pt
when he or she has a certain diagnosis. If used correctly it can enhanced
student's learning.

This site goes beyond basic osteoporosis information to include all bone
matters. Pictures and charts are well chosen/implemented and aid in holding
attention while complementing material. This site can be used to educate all
age ranges.

Technical Remarks:

Pages load quickly and no apparent technical mistakes exist.

This site is a great find. The slides and information was a learning
experience. Individuals of all ages can something about bone health and how to
protect bone health. I have assignments planned for my Infant and Chile
Nutrition classes from this site.
