Very easy to use with good explanations and note function was useful
I am new to the construction industry and found it very interesting.
I liked the way that the learning modules engaged with me by asking me questions and getting me to spot the hazards to make sure that I fully understood the content.
The graphical images and user interface was interactive and enjoyable.
I liked the way information was repeated through different modules, so it kind of worked in repetition, which is a great way to learn
The thing I liked the most was that it didn’t overload with you too much information, this made it easier to understand
The modules were short and you can do it in stages
Liked the voice over very much. Much easier to learn when listening rather than reading.
You can follow the modules at your own pace to fit in with everyday life.
