Excellent resources on this site, and really fine resource for both the classroom and the on line course.

I have referenced this site for years. I love both this site and the weekly
television show associated with it. For me,
the most useful material at this site are the video pieces and accompanying
transcripts. Each week features up to three major stories with video pieces
between 3 - 10 minutes in length. I have been able to show these in our computer
equiped classroom, using RealPlayer. Each story highlighted at the site also
features both internal and external links to related material.

Technical Remarks:

Site contains a good search feature. If you want to find videos, simply include
"watch" in your search along with key words for your topic.
Site has been updated as of Dec. 2008. Videos are now embedded within the transcript pages, more videos for older stories have been made available, many now in Windows Media Player format rather than Real Player (some still in both formats). Navigation on the new, more interactive site, does seem to be problematic and not as intuitive as the older version. Episodes before Dec. 2008 can be accessed through the archive at the site (link available on the site home page)
