We are  instructors, students, trainers, instructional designers, instructional technologists, learning technology coordinators,  and learning management system administrators. 

You will help our community and resources grow  by using and rating the materials you’ll find, creating bookmarks and exercises, and submitting additional materials for use by   others.  We want everyone to have access to open education! 

MERLOT prides itself on the peer reviews of material in our collection. Members can become peer reviewers! The commitment is 2 reviews per year. The peer review process for evaluating the teaching and learning resources in MERLOT follows a standard model and is led by Editors and editorial boards.
