MERLOT stands for the Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching and is:

MERLOT’s strategic goal is to improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning by increasing the quantity and quality of peer reviewed online learning materials that can be easily incorporated into faculty designed courses.

MERLOT’s vision is to be a premiere online community where faculty, staff, and students from around the world share their learning materials and pedagogy.

About the Learning Materials:

The materials in MERLOT are categorized as follows:

  • Simulation: Approximates a real or imaginary experience where users’ actions affect their outcomes. Users determine and input initial conditions that generate output that is different from and changed by the initial conditions.
  • Animation: Allows users to view the dynamic and visual representation of concepts, models, processes, and/or phenomena in space or time. Users can control their pace and movement through the material, but they cannot determine and/or influence the initial conditions or their outcomes/results.
  • Tutorial: Users navigate through electronic workbooks designed to meet stated learning objectives, structured to impart specific concepts or skills, and organized sequentially to integrate conceptual presentation, demonstration, practice, and testing.
  • Drill and Practice: Requires users to respond repeatedly to questions or stimuli presented in a variety of sequences. Users practice on their own, at their own pace, to develop their ability to reliably perform and demonstrate the target knowledge and skills.
  • Quiz/Test: Any assessment device intended to serve as a test or quiz.
  • Lecture/Presentation: Any material intended for use in support of in-class lectures/presentations. Lecture notes, audio visual materials, and presentation graphics such as PowerPoint slide shows that do not stand alone are examples.
  • Case Study: Illustrates a concept or problem by using an example that can be explored in depth.
  • Collection: Any collection of learning materials such as web sites or subject specific applets.
  • Reference Material: Material with no specific instructional objectives and similar to that found in the reference area of a library. Subject specific directories to other sites, texts, or general information are examples.

The learning materials in MERLOT are organized into discipline "communities".
