1.I started reviewing the material about two-weeks ago now. I have built an assignment around the material. The site will be used as a learning object for students familiarizing themselves with the basic tools and materials used in Agricultural Mechanics. I have reviewed each part of the material myself. It is a great study aid. I am especially interested in the additional categories for farm power and small engines that are being added.2.The site contains information that is very useful in a modern, basic agricultural mechanics classroom. Many of the tools are up to date and detailed. Some comments could be added about the proper use of some of the tools. At this time the site is set up for students at Fresno who are attending the classes that the topics pertain to. The site's overall usefulness is related to the user being in Agricultural Mechanics.Technical Remarks: 3.If used properly the site will allow students to increase their ability to identify and comment on the general tools and materials used in Ag. Mech. They will also be able to identify and share some information about many of the materials used. This site has potential to allow for enhanced student learning and faculty teaching. A welcome addition would be the ability of students not attending the program to test themselves on the objects. A page allowing them to be scored on their test evaluation.4.The software is extremely easy to use. The web links are labeled clearly and it is easy to find the information you are looking for. The test session that exists now is very helpful in allowing students to drill & practice. The only letdown is the inability of the student to check themselves without returning to the main menu and searching for the corresponding picture.
