Journal of Instructional Psychology, v35 n3 p240-245 Sep 2008
MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) is a free multidisciplinary catalog of digital learning materials, peer reviews, learning assignments, and member comments designed to facilitate faculty instruction. The catalog's goal is to expand the quantity and quality of peer-reviewed online teaching materials. We present an overview of MERLOT, describe the peer reviewing of materials, and highlight the psychology resources found in its catalog. The MERLOT Psychology Portal provides instructors with a wide range of teaching materials, resources, and tools as well as guidelines for the creation of digital learning objects. MERLOT offers an organized, streamlined, and timesaving way to find good digital materials for teaching psychology.
