This presentation was well done; interactive and detailed. I can see this used in an online course for this very complex material. The navigation was a little tricky at first but effective overall.

I'm not even interested in this subject, and I still found this to be a really
good tool to learn about materials. The music could be a little better though :)

Technical Remarks:

Well formatted in regards to the visual setup. The music kept playing after I
closed the window though!
Used in course? Yes
