Very nice site that covers a ton of information regarding basic computer skills. One nice feature includes the links you can click that displays the various operating system look and feel. One distracting feature is that the site and material seems cluttered and could be better organized. Maybe use a table of contents with links to each section might help organize/structure the information or lesson.

Good basic material. Really useful for credit class.

Very user-friendly presentation and easy to use and understand. Attractive and well-presented screens. However some of the material may need updating, as some "older" technology is being presented, while more up-to-date ones are either discussed later or not at all.

Technical Remarks:

More flexible navigation, right now primarily page to page, however it may be better to have hyperlinks on specific terms and related topics and allow for navigation through those as well.

A bit dated

Technical Remarks:

Navigation could be improved.

I found this site to be very user friendly and fun to use. It was filled with a
lot of "hot links" to various reference areas to provide further information. I
learned a lot in a short period of time. This site would be terrific for the
computer novice but it also is a great site to refresh more experienced computer

The layout of this site is excellent, very easy to use and I found the
information in this site very useful. Excellent rating.

I tried the first module on storage devices and found it very clear and helpful.
The quiz gives you feedback right away so you can correct any wrong notions you
have immediately.

Technical Remarks:

I would find this helpful for any class where I needed to be sure my students
were at a certain basic level of technical understanding for a course.
