This is an excellent museum-based website readily usable in art or humanities courses where the teacher has internet access.  I was very impressed with the current exhibitions area call "In Focus: Still Life" at  The information was both conceptual and historical.  The photos of the artwork are well done, and there are even various audio clips.  Very nice.  I hope that they keep these topical internet collections available after the exhibit ends.

Technical Remarks:

I use such sites in college humanities courses where I have internet access on a computer connected to an overhead projector.

Time spent reviewing site: 30 minutes

Review of materials: I spent an hour searching for things the first day I
discovered this sight. It has a lot of information for a teacher, especially one
that teaches in an art magnet school. I like that I can search for lessons and
they are already planned out. The lessons provided were easy to follow and
complete. They even provide artwork to go along with the lesson.
Quality of content: The content is wonderful. The concepts are easy for my 4th
grade students to grasp. I will be using this site as a reference in my
Potential Effectiveness: This site could add to my students understanding of the
arts. Specifically the Visual Arts, this is the area I concentrated my search
Ease of using materials: Very easy to use and find information.

Technical Remarks:

In the 4 times I have been in this site I have found no problems.

I spent an hour browsing the site. I looked at some exhibits (Devices of Wonder,
in particular), some of the Lesson Plans, and a brief look at ArtEdNet Talk
(threaded discussion). The quality of the content is amazing! Great use of
animation, video, graphics. Very easy to use, even for first timers. I think
this is an excellent resource for teaching and learning. The interactivity
promotes active learning, and it was fun!

Technical Remarks:

The only problem I encountered was with Real Player. Although I did have Real
Player installed I was prompted to download the latest version (Real One Gold),
which still didn't play the video. (RP does work on my system, just not with the
Getty content.)

Quality of Content--
The rich information and material relevant to artwork which is a very useful teaching materials
for teachers. The topic of each lesson can be a
stimulus and also help students develope the knowledge of the culture and society.

Lesson plan--Teaching Landmarks, grade level 4-12
is quite interesting to students. In this activity, studetns can think of their own landmarks or the landmarks are special to them.
Students can use their imagination-- the part that appeals me to apply the topic.

Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching--Yes, I think it can effectively be a teaching tool in class because of its various artworks and image,
which usually students would pay more attention
on it. Both the teacher and the students can have
a wonderful trip of artworks.
