This project is designed for adult learners so it was less “razzle dazzle” and more informative. Utilized two principles of the NETS for Administrators which was similar to lesson plan: Excellence in Professional Practice, and Systemic Improvement, The quizzes were great and I enjoyed the extra tool added for the date calendar.

Technical Remarks:

I would have liked to have seen a better ending for this project. Specifically, a home button after the last slide

Time spent reviewing site: 20 minutes

Very nice and informative! I really liked the actual copies of pages you were talking about. That helps the user not only find the paper by the number, but by how it looks. I also liked that you had arrows and descriptions next to areas on the forms you were talking about. I liked that the user can go back to the information to re-read before answering the question again. Great job with organized information and use of text-to-speech availability on slides. The only problem I had was that on a few slides, I realized there was no back button and I couldn’t go back to read something again or if I missed information. On the slide with the “steps to apply,” you might want to make sure the user knows to click on each step. I didn’t know that and just clicked in the area and got stuck in the middle of the information. Also your “important rules” slide doesn’t have a next button to get to your last slide which has great helpful information. An idea for improvement would be for your date calculator slide, I would hyperlink the web address to make it easier to access. I think you did a good job meeting instructional design, instructional strategy of deductive reasoning, and UDL principles. Overall it’s great and very informative! I enjoyed learning about OPT!
