The use of theoretical and applied quiz questions is really nice as this helps the student think critically about the topic.  The use of the assembly line video really enhances the understanding of the complexity of the sequence, loop and decision elements in robots.  The instructions are very clear and the information provided was complex, interesting and applicable to the intended audience. 

Technical Remarks:

The module is easy to use.  The videos, flow charts, pictures, voice recordings and the like provide a good mixed media experience that keeps the audience engaged.
