After spending close to an hour previewing the learning objects and applications I have found that a good portion of the material to be worth while. As a high school algebra teacher I mainly was looking through the "Intermediate Algebra" section. The materials give a quality tutorial on different intermediate algebraic concepts with example problems to test knowledge. I would find this to be a great review activity before a test or exam. Most of the information on this site is Trial based and you would have to purchase it if you found it worthwhile. You may be able to get away with only using the trial learning objects.
It was relatively simple to navigate through the material. Determining whether or not the trial will be sufficient will be up to the teacher and how students respond.
