This module could be re-written in smaller sections. The issue isn't comprehension, however, this is a website-not an article. Perhaps the information could be "chunked."
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This section: "http://www2.bgsu.edu/departments/english/cconline/podcasting/PSAassignment.htm," is an excellent example of integrating podcasting in an academic and even work settings. The assignments and examples are intriguing!
There is a lot of potential on this site, however, the objectives could be shorter and the whole tutorial could be more adapted to the students. Right now, it looks more like a professional development piece for the instructors. That's very helpful, however, an expanded section for students and professionals, along with additional examples and working links, would make this project top notch.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
Easy navigation through the sections of the module. The authors clearly show passion about this topic. It's a great piece for faculty development.
The material is well presented, has a structured left-menu for the reader to navigate - Examples are provided for each access to videos and podcast for the readers to understand the concept.
This material could be more interactive.
