The Theory of Plate Tectonics CD-ROM
From drifting continents to volcanic eruptions, this splendid CD-ROM combines spectacular animated graphics, superb photographs and well thought out interactive tasks to bring clarity to what is often a difficult set of concepts for students to visualise. The user is truly involved: plotting charts, answering questions, labelling diagrams and predicting results. Version 2.0 has been totally revised and now comes fully narrated thus embarking upon a new way to study this exciting theory. All new artwork enhances the understanding of the topics covered including many animations, which are easily manipulated by the user. These sequences are also available as separate QuickTime™ movie files for other classroom uses. A new illustrated glossary is included with audio pronunciations. A new index makes it easy to jump to selected frames covering a specific geologic term.
Navigation throughout the program is easier with fast forward, fast reverse, jump to a numbered frame, and index buttons available on every frame. Review activities are scored and may be saved to file or printed for easy teacher assessment. The new version also offers expanded and more rigorous coverage of the material.
