As a student reviewing this site I found it very informative. It clearly
explains exactly what IBS is and medical research that is being done to help
people that suffer from IBS. There is a bulletin board where questions and
answers can be posted for further help on learning about IBS. The chat room
also enhances the learning effectiveness of the site because the user can
converse directly with IBS sufferers, doctors, or others who are interested in
learning about IBS. Overall, I think this website would be a very effective
teaching and learning tool for users

Technical Remarks:

The website was easy to use and navigate through. There were no problems with
finding the materials, even for a first time user.
