Evaluate This Tutorial

Thank you for evaluating this on-line tutorial. Its intent is to offer base-level information on the use of digital preservation. We conceived of this tutorial as a prerequisite to attending Cornell's Weeklong workshop so that participants can devote more time to developing critical thinking skills and less time to learning basic information. The tutorial is also intended as a standalone product, and it is in this capacity that we ask you to review it.

We seek your input in two areas: content and interface design/functionality. Some of you will feel more prepared to comment in one area over the other, but we are hoping that your evaluation can encompass both. We ask you put yourself into the shoes of a potential user of this tutorial in completing your evaluation. Assume this user works in a cultural institution (library, archives, museum) and would have some familiarity with the language and concepts of digital preservation but no real experience or expertise.

Because there is a lot of general information available on Digital Preservation, we chose to orient the tutorial around our Digital Preservation Management (DPM) model (the three-legged stool for organizational, technological, and resources legs and the five stage organizational maturity model to build sustainable digital preservation programs). Does that approach work as a frame for the tutorial?
12. Are there other means for presenting information that should be included?
(e.g., help screens, glossary, search feature)
