I have used this website as a student and found it is great use for class.

After many hours working with this site while in graduate school and then later as an instructor creating lessons for my own classes I can attest to the excellence of this site regarding its breadth of content. For a resource on Antiquity's arts, literature, architecture, and geography, few sites can even begin to rival its vast digital archive. That said, since its was redesigned the presentation of the enormous cache of materials in Perseus has become increasingly imposing; efficient navigation is not readily apparent. The layout of this site and its clumsy search engine (that pulls up every single possible match for a subject) will at once please researchers and baffle freshman and sophmore survey students. The well designed exhibits created (it appears) especially for this latter trove browsers do a much better job of eliciting a quicker recognition of the value Perseus; employment of them will augment classroom or online instruction.

Technical Remarks:

no additional audio/visual pluggins necessary.
