Great thought provoking questions. Necessary for those in the health care field
as all will eventually be faced with such a situation. Made the wheels turn in

1) I spent 10 minutes reviewing the site. I plan on testing its use out in an
on-line class format.

2) The quality of the content was excellent. The author has engaged the issue

3) Students' learning will be enhanced. Ethical arguments need to be address

Technical Remarks:

4) The software is very functional.
