At least one of the pages on this site has no buttons and the feedback form does
not work. Contacting the author or the submitter directly gets bounce-backs
from both. If this is not maintained it should be removed.

Quite interesting web-site. Does take some time to browse through and do some
of the fun things. This web-site has great potential to be used in the
teaching-learning environments.

Technical Remarks:

I had to download some software and start the browser over which took alittle
time, but well worth it. First time users should not have any trouble using
this web-site, you just have to follow the directions.

This site is extremely interesting and informative!!! The area I enjoyed most
was within the visual perception section. It is truly amazing how your eyes
perceive objects and how your brain interprets them. I enjoyed the simulation
in the visual parallax section, it was very entertaining. The graphics are of
high quality and information is clearly written. The instructions provided to
navigate the user through any particular test were uncomplicated. I spent over
an hour on this site exploring the various perception tests alone.

Technical Remarks:

This site is very easy to navigate and is self explainatory.

This website really challenged my eyes and brain! It is an interactive learning
tool that I think would make a wonderful hands-on
supplement to a basic Psychology course. The site mentions the standing
psychological debate of whether we see initially perceive parts in
order to see the whole picture, or whether perception of the world depends on
other parts. In the Visual perception subtopic, I tried the Muller-Lyer and
Poggendorf tests. I am going to try and incorporate some of the visual
techniques I
learned from this site in my art work. I spent about an hour navigating the
site, and I will probably return for more information. I found the site to be
very user-friendly.

I think that this website was very effective at enhancing learning because it
was both interesting and educational. Not only did this website show interesting
experiments and demonstrations, it also explained how they work and what was
involved behind it. I spent over an hour on this website looking at the various
cool demonstrations and I believe that most other students would too.

Technical Remarks:

The website was extremely easy to navigate and first time users as well as those
who return will find the materials easy to access. It was set up so that it was
easy to find what you wanted, such as audio perception or video perception. The
only tricky part was getting the IPL plugin which allows you to do some of the
tests (like the reaction time tests in the cognition section). You can still get
through most of the site without it but to enjoy this site for all its capable
of, I would recommend getting the plugin.

I spent about an hour at this site. This site covers many aspects of sensation
and perception. This site would make a very good addition to the learning
experience. It is highly interactive and graphically pleasing. Each area leads
to more information and opportunities to be part of an experiment.

Technical Remarks:

The site is easy to navigate, but there are many links. It can be slow loading
at times especailly at peak net times.

I spent about 20 minutes at this web page in all. I have looked at it a couple
of times. The self tests are interesting.

Technical Remarks:

It is easy to navigate, but a little slow.

I spent about an hour brousing this site. It has great self-tests in areas of
vision, auditory, cognition, memory and perception. Students will be able to
test their skills in these different areas, to see what their level of abilities
are. I found it very interesting, and eye opening.

Technical Remarks:

This site was easily navigated however, some of the interesting links were
unavailable. It may be in a process of updating,(construction)?

I spent about an hour trying the different experiments and tests. The quality of
the content was of very high quality and had so much information that can be
used for learning.

Technical Remarks:

The site was very easy to use. Even first time users should not have any
problems browseing the site.

This site is extremely easy to use. The links are easily noticeable along the
side and top of each page of the site. I spent over an hour looking through the
different topics in the site. The auditory section is very interesting, as is
the visual section (though, I admit it gave me a bit of a headache). Each of the
different senses covered is explained in great detail and there are experiments
that you can perform on yourself for almost all of them. As far as using this
site to teach students, I think it is a perfect place to go. Not only is there a
ton of information, but add in the experiments that can be performed, the
student would gain quite a lot from the site, I think.

Technical Remarks:

I found the site very easy to use, even for first time users of the Internet.
There is even some links that show you how to configure your browser to view and
use the site easier and get the full benefit out of the different pages and
experiments.
