This tutorial is very helpful for understanding the basic skills to play floorball and applying knowledge to real world practices. The author tried to have students use the tutorial to boost the level of self-regulation and autonomy for playing floorball. The tutorial is composed of step-by-step detailed lessons, interactive quizzes, and extra explanations on the quizzes on the answer slides. The three units are coherently connected with explanation of the key concepts for basic skills and real world practices with images. Each short unit and its subsequent quizzes for comprehension checks are especially good for younger learners who usually have worse concentration on a topic. The tutorial is made with clear and direct instructions and intends to activate just learned knowledge and apply it to advanced learning. The students are clearly guided to gain knowledge of what each unit delivers step by step and learn how to play with the balls. The students involve in technology-implemented interactive quizzes for review of the knowledge as well as its application for expanding the skills.

Technical Remarks:

There were no technical issues throughout the tutorial. The links introduced by the author are all working properly. It might be good to have fewer texts on the explanation slides, especially in unit 1, titled Stick Selection & Hand Positioning. Since this tutorial also targets younger students, if the author inserts designated visual images or pictures and do a voiceover with fewer texts, then it will help them become less distracted. Also, it would be good to add highlighting effects to the texts. If the author emphasizes important words or phrases for having good command of demanding skills on the slides, then it will help students keep them in mind when they are applying the skills to real world practices.

This resource will really help you get a feel for how to prepare yourself for the game of floorball.  The author provides excellent details on how to position your body, choose the right equipment and how to strike the ball.  The descriptive language and clear visuals enable the learner to clearly picture the proper technique for floorball.  The presentation will appeal to many types of learners, especially those who prefer visual modes of presentation.  The presentation promotes active engagement of the learner, encouraging viewers to write down comments, questions and input that would help to improve the it.  I will be anxiously awaiting a companion to this resource that describes floorball rules and game play! 

Technical Remarks:

There were no technical concerns with this presentation.  All links were functional and it was easy to navigate.  One thing that is reassuring to me in a presentation like this is to have an "exit" button on each slide.  It is good to know that there is an easy way to get out if need be, but I am sure this is just a matter of personal preference.  The sounds were fun, and the internet links to additional sites and for email feedback are appreciated.
