Innovative MERLOT projects are always in the works. Two such projects currently underway are:
MERLOT Scholarship in the Online Teaching Commons project which will develop scholarly processes to support the exchange, re-use and adaptation of teaching expertise linked to exemplary learning resources in online repositories.
MERLOT ELIXR project is intended to develop and test new collaborations amongst faculty development centers and online resource repositories. The goal is to create innovative models for the development, sharing and use of discipline-oriented resources which illustrate exemplary teaching practices and which also support faculty with exemplary learning objects to help implement those practices with their students.
