Users can navigate through this material in any way they want in order to meet their own specific information and learning needs. The combination of video, images, hypertext links, interactive (Lucid) keys, a quiz, a tutorial and hundreds of fact sheets provide a unique way of accessing the wealth of material contained on the CD.
