This website is a collection of so-so lecture/presentation materials focusing on social psychology. There are many links that provide further amount of information. While the content itself is ok, the effectiveness as a teaching tool is limited in my perspective because much of this posted information is fairly old and could provide a lot more information in general.

Technical Remarks:

Easy to navigate but must read through the entire website to do so.

I spent about 10 minutes going over the information in this collection. Although it has a wealth of information, it is a little wordy to be used in a classroom. Students also would probably not be willing to read through this all. It would be more useful to pull specific topics out and possibly have a discussion over one of the topics vs. the whole website.

Technical Remarks:

Very easy to use. There is a homepage with a table of contents of the material. You can then click to the links which will bring up that topic. Each section also has links that define ambiguous words and direct you to books and other links under that topic.

I spent 20 minutes reading this article. I first skimmed through it, then read
it thoroughly through a second time. I feel that this article was easy to
comprehend; a first-time reader (such as myself) would have no problem
understanding the wording and language used. I think this would be a good
article to use in the classroom for this reason. The outline given at the end is
also nice and easy to understand.

I spent 10 minutes in awe of how convenient this website is for those interested
in social psychology. Everything in this website is beneficial in knowing more
about social psychology. Every link teaches something to whoever looks at it.
I truly believe that students' learning and faculty's teaching will be enhanced
because of how much explanation this website has concerning the subject. First
time users will find this software easy and very well organized. It comes with
an outline that explains Social psychology thoroughly.
