The quizzes do test students on what was gained from the lesson but students won't gain/learn more if the answers are not given at the end for immediate review.

Self-paced slide format with interspersed review questions helps with retention of content and greatly helps with passing quiz.

Great for a wrap up for the flood lesion!

An excellent explanation of the flash flood process.

Good stuff. Keep it up

This module is really helpful. I have learned a lot regarding on the processes of the flash flood.

Very interesting and useful

I would also have a GIS unit with this because it would be very useful for Raster Cover maps, which I'm sure is how some of this is displayed in the text. But it would drive home the point really well.

Solid module and provides enough basic information to a very good overview from a range of technical fields. Only criticism I would have is that the speaker goes very fast and makes it very hard to take notes without having to rewind, a lot! Tough to take notes and visual concept at such a rapid clip. But, I make it though none the worse and have a much better base of information.

Very well narrated!
God's Rebel 2014-01-17 10:25:39

This module is well done and narrated as well. It makes learning very easy and is very understandable. I recommend this module to any one wanting to learn more about flood prediction or meteorology.

The manner of presentation is well organized and the usage of graphics and animations are helpful. The audience for this module is wide, from meteorologists to hydrologists, so it is partly and necessarily simplified. The module goes into some detail about runoff curves, but I think there is a tendency for meteorologists to assume the runoff component is simply a reflection of infiltration excess. The process is more varied and nuanced than that, which can have important implications for operational procedures and forecasting prowess. It is good going in to the module to recognize this, and to explore further what specifically engenders flash flooding in your service area. I also think that although it is good to recognize the difference between basin, gridded, and County FFG, one should be cautious in using or applying gridded FFG. Ever-increasing computing power suggests this would be a nice addition to distributed modeling and forecasting (as hinted in the module). But I recommend putting some thought to this before moving forward from this module alone. As the contributors envision, seek out other sources of training and info on flash flooding. It is not a simple concept or forecasting endeavor.

Most of this module is very basic. It covers the same material found in other modules in this course. However, the "Flash Flood Guidance" section is worth going through. It offers some new information, and was/is widely used in many forecasts. The "Distributed Model", teased at the end of the module, sounds interesting as well, and provokes further research in the area.
