That is a lesson and a half! Everything fit together seamlessly.  I cannot think of anything to add or take away.  The lesson was setup perfectly.  The depth of learning on various levels is amazing Great Job.

Technical Remarks:

Everything worked for me. The links were easy to access.

I really enjoyed this presentation. It helped me review some of the things I learned in web design a long time ago. I liked the layout and the use of images on the information slides. It was helpful having several examples for each principle. I also liked how the quiz gave you immediate feedback.

Technical Remarks:

This was really well done. It was easy to follow and the information was clear and easy to follow. I had a little trouble loading the quiz the first time but that was likely my computer as I didn't have the problem on the second attempt.

Wow! This slideshow is very visually appealing and extremely easy to use. I like that there is consistency with the description being presented down the left-side of the page and that I can go forward or backward through the slides. It was a nice touch that you included your own website as an example on one of the slides also. I think that students could easily use this lesson to learn more about design elements. I like that the quiz informed you if you were correct or incorrect. Do the students have to get 100% to "pass" the quiz? I missed a couple of questions and had a 40/50 (80%) and it said that I failed so I was just curious. I really don't have any suggestions for improvement except that there were two similar questions on your quiz (in a row) regarding contrast. The actual lesson was informational and easy to use. Great tool!

Technical Remarks:

All of the links work and I really like the links to the quiz and video at the end.
