I took "a quick glance" at this material and would say that there is a lot of material here that could be useful. The site is licened under creative commons which is usually a good indicator of its potential as a good resource and the gentle reminder to users to observe fair use policies. The videos and graphics on the main page presents a quick refresher of the discipline. I like the fact the videos are short and are also embedded in the page. I have found that redirection to a thirdparty website often proves distracting. There is a wealth of information available in this resourse. The potential for classroom application is evident through the suggestion of strategies in "How do adults learn" Persons using the site might wish to decide on an area of focus and use additional resource support from the references. I was not particularly taken with the layout and think the presentation could be more visually appealing.

This site has a ton of information for one to familiarize themselves with adult learning theory and best practices.  The combination of videos and reading material are just right.  This site would be an excellent starting point for those both new (and old) to teaching adults.
