To some extent drills are useful in learning and reviewing material.  This activity suits that purpose fairly well and presents the material in a different way (the question becomes the answer).  I may include this in my online course as a self-review exercise.

Technical Remarks:

It would be useful to develop a technically more complex program that would allow students to click on one or several hints if they did not respond correctly the first time.

This would be very useful as a follow up to instruction to help students know what they already understand and what needs to be reviewed. It may also be useful as a pretest to help students see what they don't know and to create questions in their minds to be answered during class. I think it would be great to use together with perhaps a matching or similar exercise.

Very well done quiz with answers. Makes a great self-assessment tool for students. I did not use this in the classroom, but I did take the idea and made flash cards that are similar for my online nursing research class.
