This was a very good comprehensive lesson for beginning Google Calendar.  I think it would work very well for anyone who was very new to Google Calendar.  It was interactive enough to keep my attention.

Technical Remarks:

Everything I clicked on worked very well.  I liked the fact that the camtasia videos were embedded into the Weebly website, it made it more comprehensive.  I wanted to use this for my own but i ran out of time.

This lesson on Google Calendar was very thorough. I liked the way that the presentation was embedded into a web page. The videos and the forward arrows allowed the user to work at his/own pace as well as giving time for review if needed. The inclusion of the Part 4 alternative review was very thoughtful. The struture of the lesson, especially the alternative reviews, take into account the various learning needs of students and naturally allows for student differentiation.

This lesson would be approrpriate for students as well as adults wanting to learn how to use Google Calendar.

Technical Remarks:

Website, videos, links and forward buttons in web lesson worked without issue. The quiz that was part of the Google Presentation appears to not be linked correctly for the "correct" answer. All answer responses were given as "incorrect". (I am not very familar with Google Presentation so maybe if was 'user' error AKA me.)
