This resource was created using the lodeStar Presenter (http://www.lodestarlearning.com/). The CRS assumes that if you are running the lodeStar software (PC only) the file will open easily. However, if you do not have the software, it will be necessary to go into the “Demo_Frogs” folder, and open the file “index.htm” using a web browser. Once open, you will see that the resource is a presentation on frogs focusing on three questions, instead of the indicated seven. The title is somewhat misleading, since the presentation does not specifically focus on frog species. At the end of the presentation, there are three quiz questions that provide immediate feedback and submit answers to an unknown location. This presentation showcases a useful eLearning tool, but needs further development to be used as a larger unit, as indicated by its Instructional Component Type.

I had no idea what lodeStar was when I first read this resource. However, I found this tutorial to be very helpful!
