You can barely read the definitions when you highlight the items

Granted it showed the information but I wasn't really impressed. We were told that this was an optional tool to use for our assignments. It was good to see the pictures, but other than that, I was thinking it might have some questions to see if you learned anything. Doesn't seem like this has been used much as the last person who commented on this was from like 2009, it's now 2011.

Information is very superficial. it does not explain what kind of cells are skin cells (epithelial). how many rows of cells are in epidermis. How are epidermis cells formed (bottom to top).

No information on keratin.
