Again, when trying to impart this knowledge to students, I guess I would concentrate on what we really need to know. That way, we will remember what we learned. There is a lot of extraneous stuff. For example, there are fire whirls, and they show extreme fire. Is it really important for safety to know how they form? I mean, they can't be predicted. They just need to be recognized as part of the main problem, which is to get the fire under control.

lesson seemed very trivial and general. most info should be basic training and not present in this level of course. condense the topics to what course is designed towards and stay on the point. more of a review than a training.

hard to see the horizontal vortex in the video, good thermal, tho

great lessons to learn!

The quality of some of the videos could be improved.

Audio would be good to help follow along. Short and sweet and useful information though. right amount of review and questions.

Great module but you should improve the active explanation
jtomastarrago 2017-08-26 11:10:24

I already knew most of the topics in this lesson because in Catalunya Fire Department has quite experience in extrem fire behavior. But anyway I ve fount it quite interesting to enhance my knowledge

Not a bad one. This is something I feel needs to be learned with videos and a lot of photos. THen the real thing.

The longer segmented units were the hardest to retain the knowledge

This lesson was very interesting, and improved my understanding of what smoke columns can mean.

Better pictures of some of the examples in the beginning and an audio narrating some of the clips.

Showing schematics (or better yet videos with instruction) I think would have been more effective teaching tools than the large amoung of text with largely static pictures of ongoing fires. Schematics could show the wind movement and patterns better even than the existing videos. Breaking the lesson up with fewer paragraphs and more activities would have been good, although the quizzes were helpful. Some of the quiz material seems subjective and not enough information about scenarious was given (e.g. no information was given to tell whether ladder fuels were or were not present, therefore how would an answer on whether they contributed to a crown fire be derived).

I would like more clarification between the horizontal and vertical vortices, also including more visual examples.

This lesson was redundant of the whole s-290 course
Taylor Elkins 2017-01-29 20:07:56

Get out of the way when a fire whirl is on its way!
jparker@longviewtexas.gov 2017-01-24 14:48:55

Video and sound needs to be added so it is more of a lecture formate.

Would like to see the video of the "Finger of Death" explained or highlighted. Also, audio would make this module more interesting.

Es un curso bastante recomendable para cualquier persona que quiera comenzar a entender el mundo de los incendios forestales, y debería de ser obligatorio en España para todas las personas que trabajan o van a trabajar en el sector.

This module was informative, but was not narrated. It was pretty good.
