Adult Learning Links

http://www.ccboe.com/adulted/home.htm

The Adult Learning Links Web site was designed to assist adult learners and adult educators in accessing adult learning resources on the Web. While the site itself was not designed by students, students helped select and rate the Web sites that were recommended. Web sites were rated on a scale of 1 to 5, according to level of interaction, variety of activities, feedback provided. A good example of how to involve students in a project, even if the development of the site is largely teacher- or program-directed.
