I like that you can either listen to the material be read aloud or read it yourself. You can also pause the read aloud if you need to or go back and replay a part of it if something was confusing. I did enjoy the use of activities throughout the Scipack as well, although I did encounter a few issues. 3 or 4 of the activities would not load. The second window would pop up, but it would be black and I would have to exit out of it. I was still able to understand and complete the Scipack though!
