It was good – it provided a range of examples of types of digital resources very suitable to teaching science content. It is more suitable for a teacher who is not very able to use online resources or not aware of many available or someone who is just starting out teaching. I found that I was aware of most of the resources put forth in this course already, which is more than I thought I would.

Some links were outdated or no longer active. Possibly reviewing the types of software you use and searching for more updated software may have been more effective, e.g. Tiki Toki for making Timelines.

Some links were worthwhile. Several links were dead. Course needs to be updated, its clear that it is several years old as some digital resources are no longer available.

The websites and activities provided were of great use and I have added them to my digital library for further use within my class.
The content could be more relevant though by checking some of the suggested sites and videos – they have been taken down/not working anymore, and a suitable replacement would be excellent!
