I assigned modules from this site in a course on Chinese Civilization to complement readings from the textbook The Cambridge Illustrated History of China, also by Patricia Ebrey (Cambridge UP, multiple editions). I liked the additional images on the site that supplemented those available in the textbook.  The website modules tend to be focused on art and art history topics since they are more amenable to multimodal presentation.  The online modules also include important discussion questions scattered throughout to encourage users to think about the material.
