I spent about 30 minutes on the site through the link.  The link is to the website  Instructors could use this link to find things ahead of class for students to view and can use it in class to show them particulars, however I would not send students to this link without clear instruction.  The site is hard to navigate and you need to search around quite a bit to find something specific.   I did like the section under "programs" that introduced "The Intern Network" (TIN).  In the past, I have used individual Youtube videos from American Theater Wing in class and for students to view as homework but I just give them the link right to the specific video, for example, "Working in the Theater: Scenic Design.  I find searching American Theater Wing (with the topic you need, actor, director, etc.)  on Youtube an easier way to find exactly what I am looking for quickly.  I didnt find this link to be one students could peruse effectively or easily on their own.

Used in course? Yes
