This website had a very user friendly home page. Not only does it feature math information but information on many other school related topics. The search section is great as well as the section that offers peer reviews on the content. Also, you can read the reviews that have been written to see the good and bad areas that others have experienced while using this website. I thought that the peer review section was the best I have ever used for website content. Great website, informative, and very easy to navigate through!

I highly recommend this site to any student searching for sites for any project in school. It is very resourceful and the atmosphere is personal due to the fact that you have your own account and also since the sites are those recommended by other students. Knowing that other students used the given sites for their reports and such and take the time to give reviews I am confident using the Merlot. It is easy to navigate as well and very organized! Since first visiting the site I have enjoyed the many made back! An excellent quick way to find sites for school work!

I found ‘Merlot’ extremely confusing for some reason. I rarely used it, and instead searched on my own. Probably ending up on a site that is in Merlot. The few times I was able to figure it out and get in there I found it would not really bring me to the search area I wanted or needed very efficiently. I understand that this is an award winning site, and that the fault probably lies in my ignorance in its use. I will continue to keep using Merlot for at least the rest of my collegiate career, and I will probably become better adapted to it as a result. I think the idea of this site is extraordinary though.

Technical Remarks:

As I said, there is a reason I did not include this in my Webliography report. It is not a simple thing to use for the beginner. Which is what many of us are.
Time spent reviewing site: Because I found it confusing right off the bat, I spent very little time with it. Maybe a total of 3 hours. If I cannot grasp a program that is meant for teaching in that amount of time I am going to try something else. This is what I did.

14 years ago is an excellent source of scholarly material relating to just about any subject imaginable. It keeps information related to a search relevant to that search. I used one of the resources in a speech that I had to give on an overview of nuclear power. One of my resources for the speech HAD to be a scholarly/.edu [trusted] resource. The web site to which linked had a reactor simulation program that made things easier for the laymen to understand. One of the shortcomings of is perhaps the extensive resources that it contains. Consequently, one must use very specific search terms.

Merlot is a multimedia educational resource for learning and online teaching. It is simply stated a digital library of education material from all academic subjects. Merlot has a unique standard to gain knowledge about the material that is listed on their site. They have peer reviews which rates on quality of content, effectiveness and ease of use. Then to take it a step further, they have a comment section to detail exactly what the other “peers” thought of the material. This site is excellent and is extremely easy to navigate. Every time I use merlot I am able to quickly locate my needed material. When you need to find a resource you simply select the subject from the drop down list then type in your search description. Once material has come up, you are able to see a description of its contents, peer reviews, and the source of where the information came from as well as the author. It does focus primary on college level; however, does have several k-12 resources as well. It is continually expanding. It is currently valuable to me as a college student and I can see how it would be valuable to teachers as well. I recommend this site to everyone on all levels, really!

I rated this website outstanding because there was so much useful information on this subject. I wish I would have gone onto this website before I did the project on it, because then maybe I would have had a better understanding of his triangle and how to construct it. Maybe next time before I do a project that seems too hard, I will just look it up online, and maybe I will get a website that explains to me how to do it. His triangle is very interesting if you really think about it. This website tells you what his triangle is, how you would construct it, and what it is used for. We use his triangle in algebra and even in probabilities. On this website, there are also many links to go into if you want to find out more about his triangle. I even went into this website for other classes, and it has helped me out tremendously. I will continue to use this website if I need any help on homework. This was by far, the best math website that I have ever been on.

This site is a wealth of information. I think they did a great job arranging this site. There is a lot of content but pretty easy to get around. You can become a member for free and start contributing learning materials as well as create your own personal data along with some other perks. There are several disciplines you can search from here. The best thing I liked was that all the content this site had to be peer reviewed before it was able to be shown. I gave this site an excellent rating due to there is so much to search here you will never get bored and it just so well organized.

The best website for math students and instructors in my opinion is Though this website does not focus mainly on one subject, it
does have help for others to find information through other websites. Higher
educators go through the websites and approve them to be on merlot’s site.
The development team goes through all of the sites to ensure quality and ensure
they will be helpful in the mathematic learning process.

great resource for all academic material. It not only covers math but covers
other academic disciplines as well. The articles are submitted by school
faculty, which is also reviewed by their peers and students. This site is very
easy to navigate. This is an excellent source for gathering research material.
I will be using this site in the future!

tool that I will take with me not only through the rest of my college days, but
also through my teaching career. It has helped me with countless problems
through the course , and has been an enjoyable site to sift through. I find
myself looking for something specific and getting side tracked on other

I am glad I got a chance to experience this class. The merlot website is
awesome. It makes me feel like there is nothing in mathematics that I can not
do or locate if I needed assistance. It has links with a lot of material. The
information can be trusted. I think with the way we rely on computers and do a
lot of research for classes, it is important to know the information on this

MERLOT is absolutely a sufficient learning database. I am majoring in mass
communications and concentrating on journalism, therefore I am constantly
searching for texts and other sources that may further my knowledge in writing
and literature. By using the MERLOT's "browse materials" option I am able to
narrow down my search and determine what suits me best by accessing reviews made
by other members. Another advantage with MERLOT is how easy it is to navigate due to
the distinct links. I'm very glad that we were encouraged to explore MERLOT
through this class; it has enabled me to have access to very useful and
educational information.

the best online resource for all educational subjects. The website is easy to
use and provides many links to online material. Once becoming a member, the user
can browse material by subject area and the amount of information incorporated
into this website is astounding. The Merlot Community is comprised of
individuals as well as higher educational communities. Links to the members are
available in the Member Directory. The user can also contribute new educational
links as well as comment on existing sites. This website should be kept as a

While researching information on the web for a report, I became frustrated with
information that was not relevant or had too little information on the
particular aspect of the topic. I decided to check the MERLOT website and was
delightfully surprised to find the following website:

Thank you, MERLOT, for linking me to "Link Mail" a site that promotes itself by
saying, "We search the web, you get the links." As the web grows so do the
contents, but not necessarily the best and most appropriate resources. Search
engines are good for the initial inquiry, but are lengthy and difficult to weed
through. Thenks to MERLOT, I found "Link Mail" and the search for quality links
and information was done for me. I was very happy with the results of the
search that Link Mail did (and emailed me immediately). I would rate this
resource as a 5 star! It saved me time and more importantly, I was able to read
relevant and in depth information about my topic.

Another interesting web site, which has captured my attention, is Multimedia
Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching MERLOT. I have used this
web site for my math research and I found this web site quite useful. This site
has been designed for teachers and college students. The web site is intended to
help both teachers and students to achieve their goals in a learning process.
For example, MERLOT peer review conducts structured peer reviews of online
learning materials. This feature allow faculty from any institution of higher
education to decide if the online teaching – learning materials they are
examining will work in their course(s). Also, MERLOT is free and open resource.
Membership is free (which is significant for non- employed students). Any member
may add materials, comments and assignments to MERLOT. The Merlot community is
made up of individual members and higher education, institutional, and corporate
partners and affiliates dedicated to improving education. Individual MERLOT
members support the community by contributing materials and adding assignments
and comments to the MERLOT collection. The web site has some great features like
federated search (search multiple digital libraries), MERLOT conferences (about
yearly International Conferences), MERLOT awards (recognizing exemplary
materials), MERLOT RSS (syndicated MERLOT content). I would recommend MERLOT to
all college students and faculty.

I was introduced to this site through this class (Liberal Arts Math) and it’s a
great one filled with all kinds of different subjects ranging from arts and
science to business and humanities. The main focus of course for using it this
semester is for mathematics and they have any topic you need to find. This site
can be used for research papers as well as for browsing interesting material.
The main page lists the subjects and as you click on one the subcategories open
up and also there is a search field for hard to find topics. You also have the
chance to become a member and have a profile that saves certain websites in a
collection for you to reference back to at a later time. Many math sites that I
have visited this semester seem to reference or link back to merlot in some way,
