Webopedia looks like a very useful site to learn about computer terms and uses.
In the few articles that I reviewed it clearly explained each term. Although,
in the articles that I reviewed the articles assumed that the learner had
pervious knowledge of the subject matter.

Time Spent Reviewing Tutorial: 10-15 Minutes

Content Rating: Good content, learners may require previous knowledge.

Usage: Mid-Level technology users who want to know terms and usage of new
technology and the associated terms.

Ease of Materials: Materials were easy to follow with previous knowledge
assumed.

Technical Remarks:

No obvious mistakes. The advertising was annoying when it flashed. It is
understandable that some sites need to be self sufficient but the ads will
distract focus on articles.
Used in course? Yes
