NewsBlogger is an automated service that instructors can use to incorporate news headlines, and their own comments or assignments for each headline, into a course website. The headlines are hotlinks to current news articles posted on the Internet. The headlines come from over 1500 sources, grouped into approximately 300 categories.
Merlot is a really useful site for finding out just about anything you need to know about mathematics, such as Pascal's Triangle, Fibonacci numbers, or anything else that may come up with. It is a great source for college students and I will be using it again I am sure. I plan on going into engineering and I can use it to brush up on some of my formulas.
Sometimes a little hard to navigate, but overall, a very user friendly site.

The NewsBlogger website provides, in conjunction with the related BLOGGER website, an automated way to create current events "weblogs." (A weblog, or "blog," is a web page that contains hotlinks and comments on the contents of the hotlinked sites.) The instructor can use these weblogs to assign readings and/or assignments for any course in which current events are important. Since the news headlines come from over 1500 sources, grouped into several hundred categories, the information could be useful for a wide variety of academic subjects. User comments on the BLOGGER site indicate that one English instructor is using it for classroom discussions and debates.
This website was approximately one week old at the time of this comment, and the user interface was somewhat awkward. I rated this site at 4 stars because of the difficulties with the interface. I expect substantial changes in the interface and/or details of use and, if things improve, I would raise my rating to 5 stars.
