Evaluation and Observation

Content Quality

Rating: 3.75 stars
Strengths: There is a lot of information provided with detailed explanations on each link
Concerns: The need to register and potentially have to "pay" is a concern. It would also be good if sub-categories are created to assist with the information. The initial website just takes you to a mass list of terms might be helpful to include a brief description at the top of the point of the website

Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool

Rating: 3.75 stars
Strengths: Anyone who uses this site would be able to learn quite a bit in a short amount of time because it is all listed on one site regarding theories, methods and terms on ethics and business.
Concerns: The website does not clearly discuss learning objectives or identify what prior knowledge is needed. There is no evaluation of the content of the various resources.

Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty

Rating: 3.5 stars
Strengths: The website is easy to navigate, you just have to click on the term you want and it will take you to a new page. Very simple layout.
Concerns: It is not very visually appealing, there is no real graphics, it is just a list of terms.Has a low design quality

Other Issues and Comments: The website is very easy to use and navigate. Has a great list of terms on methods, theories and models regarding ethics and business and allows an individual to learn a lot in a short amount of time
