The content for these tutorials is fabulous! They are very thorough. The audio quality is very good on some of these tutorials and not so good on others. Additionally, some of the tutorials are more engaging than others. I think the requirement to advance the screen might be a technique to keep the user engaged. If so, I think the technique works a little if you are viewing the tutorials as an individual rather than in a class setting. So far, the tutorials I use most are "Deciphering your Assignment" and "Using Wikipedia for Academic Research". The audio is good in both of those. I've played these tutorials in class in preface to a discussion or activity. I've also linked to them in an LMS so that students could review them on their own as needed. I typically include the accompanying quiz questions in the LMS.

There are several Flash-based tutorials at the site. I reviewed "Evaluation of URLs" and "Using the Google Search Engine." I would definitely refer students to these tutorials, which are highly relevant to information literacy. They allow for menu-based navigation, have the narrative voice-over printed on the web page, and use highlights appropriately to illustrate material described on screen. The tutorials are brief and focused and would be helpful to students.

Technical Remarks:

I did not give it the highest rating, mostly because of technical/formatting issues and not because of concerns with the content. For instance, the voice appears computer-generated and is distracting. The tutorials do not play through continuously, but must be advanced after each screen. There is no mechanism to turn off the audio other than turning down the speakers. When you jump ahead in the menu it will sometimes continue the audio of the 1st page over top the audio of the 2nd page.

Great example of the right way to set up a reusable resource, easy to repurpose
flash files and quiz questions.

If only alot more of the resources in Merlot were of this model...
