I recently selected this animation as part of a lesson on cell division. My
students will view the animation in order to gather information on each phase of
mitosis. The large graphics and clear labeling will help my students make
sense of the mitosis process. The animation's combination of graphics, text,
and audio made the content easy to understand. The content accurately depicts
mitosis in language my students will easily comprehend. The animation enhances
the lesson by illustrating the individual steps involved in the complex process
of cell division. Although the animation is clear and easy to understand, the
graphics of prophase could be more detailed.

Technical Remarks:

This animation was very user friendly. I accessed the material several times
while planning the lesson and did not experience any difficulties. The graphics
were clear and the audio portion was easy to understand. The pause button will
help my students take notes while watching the illustration. The link from the
merlot site goes to a web page with a link to the animation. This two step
procedure provides easy access to the animation but may need explanation during
the lesson.
