The content is presented in basic HTML as a black and white outline. There is no interactivity, no questions to answer, and little learning enhancement.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This is a fairly short treatise, which may aid in readability for individuals with a base level of economic understanding.
Because there are no pictures, videos, or opinions other than the author's, the broad applicability of this material is somewhat limited.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
The site is extremely easy to use, organized, and well marked regarding content and location.
The site is easy to use becuase it only includes hypertext links that require pointing and clicking. The site lacks an easy-to-follow navigation system, that would allow users to jump around without getting lost.
Other Issues and Comments:
I think that this site could be improved with multimedia, treatises from a variety of authors on the subjects at hand, and am attempt to appeal to multiple learning styles.
