The purpose and subject of this project was well formed and clear throughout the presentation. I found it very appealing as the screen captures added visuals to accompany the walk through steps. I would add some more navigation buttons to be able to return to the beginning of the presentation, or some back buttons to go back a section. By including audio and visual elements, the lesson could be used for a variety of students with different learning styles. With the feedback provided in the review questions, the learners are able to assess their knowledge of the content.

Technical Remarks:

The lesson could use some additional navigation buttons.

I really liked this short lesson. It explains very clearly the concept of RSS and I learned new things that I can do with iGoogle. I think the second slide is a great engagement strategy and the questions are very appropriate for reaching understanding of how to use the tool. There are still many teachers at my school that don’t use RSS or iGoogle, so this is a great introduction for using them.

Technical Remarks:

Presentation's animations and sounds worked well.
