  2. Content & Technical Accuracy - Are there errors in the content?
  3. Adaptability & Modularity - How easily can the materials be broken up into smaller pieces?
  4. Appropriateness & Fit - How well does content align with what you are teaching?
  5. Accessibility - How accessible is content to students with disabilities?

Rubrics are available for group evaluation and more in-depth review.
