Nice presentation of information.  I love the idea of using a cloze passage.  The presentation is visaully attractive and easy to read. On the other hand, there are a couple of things I'd suggest that might make the final product more effective for students to work with.  One thing to consider is a home button to take you back to a page with directions.  I didn't find any sound through the presentation (video didn't play) and the web links you include could be hyperlinked so a viewer would be taken right to the material.

Technical Remarks:

video didn't play

I gave you an Okay not because of the content, but because of the way the Powerpoint ran.  I liked your concept, but it took me a minute to figure out the definition and what I was supposed to do with that...maybe some more directions? Also it would have been nice to have some way of marking off the words.  I liked your quizzes, but you need a "back" button.  I think with a bit of "tweeking" this would be an outstanding presentation.

Technical Remarks:

I tried to view the video but it wouldn't work for me.  Also the presentation froze on me on the first quiz.  You needed some "back" buttons as I got stuck a few times.
