The Brain from Top to Bottom!

Comment: After taking a thorough look at this psychology learning object, I find it to be very informative, accurate, and comprehensive on multiple developmental levels for various disciplines on a variety of topics. In assessing this presentation/lecture material from a psychology standpoint, it is even better because having information from multiple disciplines facilitates a more thorough psychology experience (i.e. using both the Neurological, Social, and Psychological presentations on "From the Simple to the Complex"). Overall this site is a great resource, however, to use it to supplement (instead of replace) teaching students the material may be tricky. Also, what separates this site from a lecture or any text book is the option of different difficulty levels that allow struggling students to choose an easier level if confused and then return to the level they should be learning at. What a great resource for presenting material!

Technical Remarks:

Although the LO is great in the presentation/lecture format, it is not very interactive. Other more interactive functions could really boost the appeal of it. Quizzes with feedback, flashcard options, and tutorials should be considered to make this the most appealing resource for students.
