The material provides an extensive overview on hypertension through five separate modules addressing definition, risk factors, symptoms, categories of hypertension, effect on the heart and blood vessels, treatment, and recommended lifestyle changes for managing hypertension.  The delivery of modules covers varied learning styles through color in presentation of information, graphs, pictures, and videos.  The tutorial may be useful for a preparation material with course content, supplemental resource material, and homework for online or in classroom for medical/surgical nursing or health sciences.  A quiz or interactive activity accompanying the material would be beneficial in engaging the learner and evaluating learned knowledge.
