Partner Communities and Institutional Teaching Commons
MERLOT has developed a service to enable MERLOT Partners to easily, effectively, and inexpensively customize and sustain the infusion of MERLOT services into their campuses and organizations. An Institutional Teaching Commons or community portal is one of the customizations that MERLOT offers to its partners - allowing campuses or systems to develop a branded site to promote a project, teaching area, or institutional initiative. These portals can be an effective way to make the extensive resources and tools that are part of the main MERLOT site more relevant and useful to faculty on partner campuses and systems. The communities created may also be organized around a topic, technology, or theme that might involve faculty or academic technology staff from across campuses.
Examples of Teaching Commons may be found by going to http://www.merlot.org/merlot/communities.htm and selecting from the Partner Communities drop down list.
