This is really a great exercise that is interactive and helps students actively practice what they are learning in their class.

Good interaction and nice links to additional resources and explanations at the end. Easy to use and easy to understand. Will acquaint students with the basic principles of classical conditioning using basic Pavlovian concepts and ideas (dogs, feeding, salivation).

This is a good resource particularly to help students who might be more kinestetic/visual to understand these constructs of classical conditioning.

I found this learning object to be very helpful in teaching classical conditioning and learning. A student actually referred it to me and I have since used it as supportive learning material in my course. I think it is provides good quality content, is an effective tool, is easy to use, and is fun!
