The Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (MERLOT) website (http://www.merlot.org/merlot/index.htm), has been offering peer-reviewed teaching and learning materials for many years. A recent addition to the site is ELIXR (see http://elixr.merlot.org/merlot_elixr?noCache=268:1289918286). This portion of the site offers short digital stories of faculty describing their teaching strategies. The stories are categorized as follows: course preparation and design, understanding and addressing students' needs, teaching strategies, teaching and learning, technology and learning, developing instructional expertise and assessment and evaluation. Faculty who want to learn more about fostering creativity, for example, can find several different strategies for doing so in less than 25 minutes.
