I really liked how this StAIR presented the content. I felt it would be good for young readers. I like the idea of the audio and video, however I could not get them to work and in some cases, I could not take the quizes.

I like the overall content. All the pictures are very helpful for the students.

Technical Remarks:

The video wouldn't work for me nor the the little sound icons.  Something you might want to change that could be helpful to the students would be taking off the mouse clicking to advance to the next slide.  That way if a student accidently clicks the mouse to advance instead of an arrow they don't get lost in the powerpoint presentation.
