This lesson provided an excellent overview of six major features and their influence on Atlantic Tropical Cyclones. It helped increase my knowledge of tropical meteorology and factors influencing the strength of Atlantic Tropical Cyclones.

Overall a very well put together and informative lesson.

The material is appropriate as the reviewer mentioned below. I had absolutely no technical problems with any crashes whatsoever. I think that this lesson could contain double the material as this is really the foundation for tropical cyclone development in the Atlantic. I think some review questions after each segment would be beneficial because otherwise it's easy to go through the material and not get the a full understanding of the concepts. There's no application until the end, which is the quiz with all the topics mixed all together.

Seems the concept and principles are good. Two negatives: 1-Give vocabulary definitions up front. If this is to teach those who do not already know it, teaching the new technical vocabulary is an essential foundation. 2- I tried 4 times, but it crashed each time, before I got even half through the module. If it's a problem on my end, only effects me. But if it's a system problem, needs to be upgraded.
