Rating: 4 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Paul Burwick (Student), Apr 19, 2014

Overall Rating:




For the purpose of this review, this site was used strictly for experience and review purposes and was not used in a classroom setting.


Technical Use:

The initial review was done in Google Chrome, Version 34.0.1847.116 m supporting Marcomedia Flash Player and Java scripts. The site was also reviewed in I.E 11 but not as thoroughly. The OS used is Windows 8.1 on a Samsung all-in-one touch-screen computer.

Ease of Use:

The site as a visual tool is very effective and easy to use. It provides text that will assist those that are hearing impaired. Worked on Samsung Galaxy tab3 on Google Chrome App. It is diffcult to assess as to if the material is accessible for those with visual impairments – the site is very graphically driven.



The Learning outcomes are clearly defined. The site is rich in content and ideas as to the potentiality of MERLOT. In an actual publication, the user will have access to valuable information and resources. Knowing how to use the information will make it much more pertinent to the learner; however, as it is, it is an effective visual aid to teach a process. If the item were available as a guide, the information would be updated regularly so that it has not been updated since 2007 has no bearing on the usefulness.



Time spent reviewing site: 1 1/2 hours
