Great job on the STAIR.  I think this is something I could make use of the next time I am teaching a physical education class.  Great job.

UDL guidlines are well represented.  The appearance is colorful but not overbearing, and the use of different size, color and type of font is attractive.   I like the way you added some comedy, music and sound effects.  Additionally, there are multiple means of representation as there are not only slides but also web links from a hospital and a physical therapy organization  and a link for a worksheet.  The only thing that may be missing is the possiblity for students to hear what has been written.

Technical Remarks:

The lesson is easy to navigate through and there are no problems with the links or action buttons. Also, the timing of everything is great!  Well done.
