This sounds like something I'd like to see. There's no webpage attached to the material. Giving an error message.

A very impressive and useful tool with a nicely modern design and attractive layout. It's amazing to see how "dry" grammar can be turned into an interactive, enjoyable experience.

Looking at the UDL guidelines:

Multiple Means of Representation are featured through a vaste supply of background knowledge. Many different topics are being spelled out in great detail.

Multiple Means for Action and Expression come through in the incredibly complete Index. Also the elaborate number of additional resources for "Further Study" provide further resources and media.

Multiple Means for Engagement are evident through the infamous "Index" that gives full control to the user in which order the different subjects can be tackled. Also during the solid quiz it's always possible to return to that "Index".

Technical Remarks:

Very smooth sailing.

Somer areas for possible review:

1) add sound to the different buttons. Especially in the Quiz it's a nice additional surprise for the user.

2)texts are sometimes cut mid word on the slides when on my screen. Maybe it's just my Mac, but otherwise please have a look.

3) not all Quizzes did appear on my screen. 8, 9, 14 & 15 went AWOL. Again it might just be on my computer, but pls have a look.

4) i always like to be able to navigate backward to re-read something when necessary. You might want to consider to add "back" buttons on each slide.

The content is helpful for students learning English and will support their mastery of tricky subject-verb agreements.  The explanations are easy to understand and are clear.  The "quiz" will help the learner assess their own understanding of the concepts and provides a link back to the explanation if there are questions about why an answer was incorrect.  In addition, there are web sites to provide further exploration, explanation and practice of the topics covered.

Technical Remarks:

The resource works well technically.  I found no glitches and was able to move easily through the tutorial.  My only recommendation on the technical side is that I like an "exit" button on each slide so that I know that there is always a way out.  This is a matter of personal preference, I suppose, but I think it is good to provide that failsafe for those who may need it.
