The MERLOT project (Multimedia Education Resource for Learning and Online Teaching) is an effort to ease the discovery and evaluation burden on individual instructors wishing to use web and multimedia resources in their classes. This multi-disciplinary collection is open for any registered user to submit, comment on, or add pedagogy to teaching resources. Central to this project is an established peer-review process with well defined evaluation criteria. This talk will describe these criteria and their connection to the ways students learn, the review process, and how the combination of an open resource and sanctioned reviews add value to existing learning materials.
