The Lumen website covers multiple disciplines, all with OER at their heart. The materials offered are well structured, clearly presented and accessible. Being shared with a clear OER licence means that the resources can be shared freely. Some improvements would be beneficial where increased interactivity with a user, e.g. some forms could be converted to electronic to be filled in online would enhance the experience. Overall it is ad free, simple to navigate and whilst not heavily stocked with material, each sub category is detailed. The computer help often refers to Office 2013 which is now out of date with many users at school/university on Office 365 which would mean there are some issues with what is shown and what appears on the users screen due to incremental software upgrades.
