"SBLi is generally a great tool for looking at public health problems in the community, which often involve complex problem solving requiring multidisciplinary responses."

"From what the students have been telling me so far, those that have been using SBLi this semester seem to LOVE it. Many have been using at it and several have indicated they intend to use the scenarios as exam revision (something I had not expected). So hopefully it will be reflected in the marks at the end of the semester."

"I'm just writing to let you know that the Learning Scenarios are fantastic, and are a great help with understanding the course material. I think they are an even better study tool than having Lectopia available. My only suggestion would be to improve the sound of the videos, and make them available for download. Thanks a lot!"

"In all, these were incredibly helpful study tools, and while I took penalty time to do the scenarios, I tried to make the most of it with added information, which I think will pay off in the final."

"Just finished with the Year 2 students who did our SBLi module and they loved it (surveyed)."

"This is fantastic ..can't wait to have a go at building a scenario myself"
"I'm really impressed with this program .. it's got a lot to offer"
"This is great .. it allows students to work with real-world scenarios .. and we've heard today how important it is to engage students in science in the world around them"
Comments from participants at a recent Science Teachers Association Workshop.
"We have developed our first scenario using SBLi and are very happy with the outcome. We now want to send to students who don’t have internet access the scenario on CD."
"We used SBLi to create a number of interactive scenarios for our web site. The scenarios have been useful educative tools and points for discussion within the legal profession. SBLi people understood what we wanted and worked with us professionally to put our script into reality, creating a bridge between the idea and the technology."

"I'm happy to say the response from students was universally positive. They all found the tool easy to use and helpful. One student said that the last time she tried this subject she gave up at this point after trying for 10 hours to get her brain around problem definition, but this tool made it crystal clear for her!. The students all appear to have navigated around the tool in different ways but they all had no trouble getting where they needed to go in the end. They singled out the questions that popped up along the way as particularly useful.
I had been a bit concerned that we hadn't given them enough prompts to go to the highlighted items in the photos but they said they had no problems with that and that the design worked well for them (unlike some of my colleagues who had trouble finding the green folder on Pat's desk). They appear to have just played with the picture, clicking on anything that looked likely to see if it linked to anything. This is particularly pleasing to me as I am concerned to stimulate them to explore rather than follow a recipe. I asked for any negative comments but got none. When asked if they would like more of such tools they all enthusiastically agreed. So we couldn't have done any better than that, eh? I'm very pleased."

"Using SBLi is very straight forward and logical. And I appreciate being able to concentrate on developing the learning experience.
The learning concept of SBLi suits our audience as it allows the learning experience to be delivered at various levels within the one scenario."
