There are a wide variety of materials available. Some of the information is much less useful. The first hand accounts presented in the first "section" are the most valuable resources. The site has too many ads that are often distracting.

I spent about 30 minutes looking at the material in this site. I thought the
material in the site was very accurate and very educational. This does enhance
teaching and learning and it was very easy to use. This was one of the most
interesting sites I have ever visited.
