Technical Remarks:

The site is easily traveled and the graphics fit the period. I would have liked

I reviewed this site within thirty minutes. It is very insightful. It even gives
hands on exercises which I tried out. They were fun, yet they gave you an
insight into what the people of that time actually went through. The content is
complete and accurate. This has a great potential to involve students and
actually get them to learn facts from the renaissance time period. Not only is
it enjoyable, it is very easy to follow. You don't have to search for what to do
next or for which order to study in. The site gives you the order in which to
follow and walks you through the time period.

Technical Remarks:

The graphics are colorful, yet not overwhelming.
