Exploring Constitutional Law

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: Rashaud Hannah (Student), Oct 07, 2013

I took an introductory course on higher education law earlier this year, and was interested in reviewing material directed at students’ speech rights. As a higher education administration student, I found this website’s use of plain language helpful in developing a practical knowledge of the material. In gaining a working understanding of what constitutes students’ speech rights, I found it easier to identify the nuances that each landmark case brought to bear on the issue, which helped deepen my understanding. To that end, the website’s questions also provided a rigorous examination of the freedoms and limitations associated with student speech rights.

Technical Remarks:

I appreciate the use of photos related to the landmark cases, as the photos seem to enhance the website’s overall appearance and provide additional context for the reading material. I appreciate the quantity and quality links of links available throughout the website, as they provide the user with opportunities to engage in deeper study that is still pertinent to the original material. The website is comprehensible and easy to navigate.

Time spent reviewing site: 6+ hours
