The information in very convoluted and complicated for an online course. There could be more interactivity and USE of the products described in the lesson. A very OJT type of content.
pcardiff 2017-12-27 15:17:20

This was a little too long - needs to be condensed into what should be important to remember.

I did not like this lesson as much as some of the others. had to content did not appear on each page without the need to scroll up and down. Little to no videos or imagery associated with the lesson to assist learning. The module feels incomplete compared to the work done to create some of the others.

HARD
Smcgonigal 2017-12-02 00:02:32

Could use audio just like the other sections. Similar information seems disjointed and is hard to follow. Not enough examples, such as IMET vs. FBAN - hard to tell the difference

MDurner 2017-08-19 22:05:55

The style of this lesson was not conducive to my learning and retaining of the material. I prefer more interactive and auditory lessons.
jtomastarrago 2017-08-17 03:36:55

In this lesson I did not learnt so much in relation with fire behavior. This lesson is useful for firefighter working in US. Then it is shown how US Forest Department is well developed in Predictive Services for Fire behavior and danger .

Hard subject to stay interested in. It is very important part of the wild land environment. The lesson should be more interactive like the last few units. Having to read all of this can make it difficult to understand. I did this unit on an iPad. The interactive areas did not work.
tdbabajan 2017-05-29 17:53:34

Too many answers per question for a multiple choice test. Coupled with no ability to review what you got wrong makes it very difficult to go back and find what you're missing.

jackchristmas13 2017-01-16 15:31:34

all of the other lessons had interactive features, including spoken interaction through the lessons. this lesson was like reading through a power point. i don't feel i learned very much through this lesson. more interactive would better keep my interest and help me retain more information.

I personally have an easier time with lessons using the audio that previous units had.
skubedew 2016-12-09 19:11:09

Definitely the most boring of the S-290 modules so far. Lack of animation, videos, and the fact the voice was monotone and robot-like. Also, a portion of this lesson was dedicated (and wasted) to navigating the RAWS ROMAN site, which has been shut down due to lack of funding.
ceuler 2016-12-09 12:49:44

Information needs to be updated, especially concerning ROMAN. I tried to access the site and is states that it is permanently offline (as of April 2016).
cowboy89_1 2016-11-22 10:12:49

This unit really is a bit absurd for people who work in other countries than the US. My rating for this unit is appalling.
eltitoandarin 2016-05-01 11:06:07

Un poco dificil para mi ya que mis nociones de ingles son muy bajas, y en algunas de las preguntas tal y como he podido traducirlas, las respuestas pueden ser todas asi que mi puntuacion es baja.
Rtr2826 2015-12-17 17:34:19

This unit is presented poorly. The information is important, and it is unfortunate that the layout is such that much of the information is hard to retain.
formosan80 2015-12-08 09:29:41

I felt that this unit was the easiest to follow and it delivered content in an efficient manner. I feel that the other units waste my time. I can read faster than the audio and I often have to wait for the video or audio to reach a certain point before I can continue. This unit avoided this problem.
firemann89 2015-12-05 15:15:51

great info but extremely dry and hard to stay focused following
Medic10@me.com 2015-11-14 13:54:31

Yep, I agree with every other posts in regards to this unit. It is by FAR the worst unit in the course. I am being generous with the 1 Star. This unit NEEDS to be IMPROVED! The information that they are trying to present is important information. The deleivery of the information is where things fall apart. As one person said, appears that this was an "after thought", "fell through the cracks", or done by someone that had not worked on any other units.
Dhilborn 2015-10-26 11:26:12

fyrengineer 2015-05-17 16:01:19

Absolutley terrible module. it was a horrible waste of time. The test questions did not test your knowledge. The "check all that apply" was stupid!!!
gandolfomike 2015-04-08 21:14:37

Poorly put together section of this course. It was not narrated, which added to the difficulty of the section. Not certainly clear on all information presented. Seemed that this section was ignored and put together at the last minute by someone not involved in the other chapters!
KK4SBS 2015-02-15 22:38:23

Extremely dry and hard to follow. Luckily the test is only 12 questions but most of them are PARAPHRASED with MULTIPLE answers that "could" be "correct". Definitely makes getting a score of 94%+ a bit difficult. Oh well...
j.stramler 2014-11-14 01:06:43

Very dry.
ritterlms22 2014-04-28 21:09:45

Dry... I hate the questions where you need to choose all that apply. It could be either 1 or 5 different things. I keep a window open with the course to check my answers, and the answers sometime cannot be found verbatim. A little misleading
God's Rebel 2014-02-04 08:43:46

I agree with "jspriggs" , this module is very dry. I beleive that if you were involved in the fire sector, you might find it a bit more informative than I did. It is not narrated and that makes it a bit harder to understand. I would only recommend this to fire personal, as it is hard to understand.
mike_easley137 2013-10-30 11:49:49

Presented like a list, makes comparison of available products less intuitive. Of the various formats so far in this course, this was the one I felt I got the least lasting information from. Also, in NFDRS section, "Smokey the Bear" should be "Smokey Bear."
jspriggs 2013-10-16 22:06:11
