This is an extensive site that focus on the eye anatomy and associated pathologies. The site is not easy to navigate and it is not visually appealing. That being said, the content is technically sound and the pathology slides are very thorough, although I wish the slides had more information on the pathologies.

There is a video in the site that is not visually enticing to the students. Overall it would be helpfull if all the images had a caption attached. I wouldn't recommend the site to my students but I might use the pathology slide show in future classes.

Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes

Very good site. The information of the eye and eye diseases was accurate and helpful. The color and field tests were fun to take and the pictures of they eye were excellent. The quizzes were ok, but feedback would have been useful. I intend to use this site to incorporate the pictures of eye diseases when I give lectures on the eye.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to use and navigate within the site. Organized well.
Time spent reviewing site: Spent about 15 minutes on the site.

I feel this site is a good learning tool for a high school classroom. I
particularly like the image of the eye with the parts labled and links to that
part. This site will be useful for students who want to learn the basics of the
eye.

Technical Remarks:

I think it would be better if the site was translated into other languages.

This site can be very useful in a high school classroom. In a high school
anatomy class, a teacher can use this site as a replacement for the eye unit. I
am going to divide my students up and have them research one part of the eye.
Then they will give an oral presentation to the class on there topic.
Used in course? Yes

Suggestions for improvement.
1. Use a sans-serif font (the font used is not suitable for screen reading) like
Verdana or Ariel for greater text clarity. Try it.
2. The contrast between the font color and the background color makes the text
more difficult to read than it need be. Use a darker color for the fonts.

I thought the material was very informative. I thought that there was alot of
good information to teach to your class.

Technical Remarks:

I think it would be a good learning tool for the class there is a very good
diagram of the eye that is labled well. The material was easy to use.

teaching tool.

Technical Remarks:

Links were clearly labeled. Graphics of the eye were good.

I spent about 20 minutes reviewing this site. I read the material and then I
did some of the testing excersises in order to become more famillar with the
site. The model of the eye used along with the information gave an effective
understanding of the organ. I think that if a person uses the material to its
full potential they will leave with the basics on how an eye functions and the
different parts of the eye. First time users should have no trouble with
borwsing the website.

I loved this site and found it just as I was involved another course that
involved the eye, so it was of great benefit to me. There are so many different
links and tests to take that you are surprised at how much you learn.

Technical Remarks:

A very easy to navigate site, very student friendly especially for the first
time user.

I spent around twenty minuntes brousing around this site. I found the material
to be helpful in aiding classroom lessons on this topic. There is a good
learning potential for a student researching this subject. Some of the
descriptions are involved, but with this topic, they have to be.

Technical Remarks:

I found this site easy to navigate. The links are clearly marked and defined.
Also, the graphics are well done, easy to see.

I really enjoyed looking through this web site. Because of such interest, I
spent about an hour researching the material. This content had perfect quality,
This site not only described all about the eye, but went as far as labeling and
showing a picture of what they were talking about. I feel This site would teach
many people about the human eye that they had not known already about it. Very
educational, and easy to obtain the information.

Technical Remarks:

This web site was very informative, education, and easy to follow. I thought
this site was easy to get to, and sufficient information to learn about.

Very informative site for anyone interested in learning about the eye. There is
a ton of information about the eye, its parts, and even tests on your vision,
such as a color-blindness test. I think the site would be perfect for anyone
needing to learn about the eye, regardless for what reason. For a student
needing to study different aspects of the human eye, there is a great deal to
look at.

Technical Remarks:

The site was very easy to use and understand. For anyone unfamiliar with
terminology, there is even a glossary of terms within the site that defines
nearly everything.
