A really user-friendly online course. A good example to learn from since I am studying online course-design.

Every module has an assignment that students must complete. Does this create student workload issues or is this how the instructor would like to keep track of students' progress? Some online courses assign only two or three major assessment items, and encourage students to make regular, marked postings to discussion boards.

Technical Remarks:

I'm used to the Blackboard system, and so found the pages quite bare, yet uncluttered and easy to navigate.

Time spent reviewing site: 20 minutes

I spent only a few minutes browsing the site the first time, but the ease with
which I was able to locate information, navigate within the site, and get a
general idea of the course and its objectives is a testament to its solid
construction and user-friendly nature. The site is not merely easy to work
with, it also incites interest in the viewer to burrow deeper into the
information housed within.

Technical Remarks:

The author wisely begins his course with a module devoted entirely to learning
how to use the site, even though, as he claims, the site is merely a support
structure (the bulk of the course is delivered via CD-ROM). This type of care
is, suprisingly, becoming less common in web-based courses as instructors assume
that students are web literate simply because the latter send e-mail and use
chat rooms. Size of some of the modules could be problematic to users with
modems, but I assume that this possibility is offset by the information
contained within the course CDs.

I would give this site and overall 5 star rating. Objectives were well stated.
Technical requirements, learning strategies, and course evaluation information
was clearly given.
