Great module! It entails a lot of description and explanations.
A suggestion I have for you is to explain why primary alcohols favor E1, and secondary favor etc.. You should go into the idea behind hyperconjugation, and the stabilizing effect it has on carbocation intermediates. This would allow the reader to grasp the concept better than merely memorizing. Also, you may want to elaborate on the product section in which you state that trans is a more favorable product. Why is this the case, and are there any exceptions? These are a few suggestions, however your page clearly explains the overall topic in great detail. Good job!
