Many teacher education faculty members are reluctant to develop web-based instructional materials for use in their classes. Others have difficulty finding quality resources to use in their online courses. In an effort to encourage the effort that is required to develop these resources, MERLOT offers a peer review process that is comparable to the peer review process for journal articles. Professionals within the field evaluate sites that have been submitted to MERLOT, a database of instructional materials available on the web for student learning and online teaching. Each review is conducted by a minimum of two reviewers and results are linked to information about online learning materials that are submitted MERLOT at http://merlot.org. As a result many institutions are now considering websites that have been evaluated by the MERLOT Peer Review Boards comparable to peer reviewed journal articles.
