Identify the strengths of this teaching resource

This resource has a simple, dynamic layout, where the learning material is organised sequentially, providing the students with a logical and meaningful structure(Malamed, 2015). It integrates authentic, reflective, and collaborative learning experiences thus encouraging student-centered learning ( Curtin University, 2015). Moreover, this resource has interactive multimedia, which helps to illustrate complex and abstract concepts, which is otherwise difficult to comprehend (Karim, 2015). For example, a virtual tour of a cell. Finally the multi-modal learning structure will appeal to a range of learner styles.
