MERLOT Psychology Portal Visit Main MERLOT

Welcome to the MERLOT Psychology Portal! MERLOT is an open online community of faculty, staff, and students who share educational resources for teaching and learning. The Psychology collection in MERLOT contains approximately 1000 learning objects and provides access to nearly 20 different types of materials (including online texts and online courses) across 15 psychology disciplines.

The MERLOT Psychology Editorial Board manages the collection and oversees a peer review process that evaluates the applicability of the materials within the collection. Each MERLOT Peer Review provides guidance on how the material can be applied in both online and F2F classrooms.

Our collection grows based on contributions of learning objects and teaching materials from across the psychology curriculum, suggested by faculty just like you. We are seeking mobile apps, simulations, videos, and other interactive or prolific materials that you feel help your students to see their materials come alive. Have a suggested resource for us that you think needs to be added? Submit your recommendation here:  after you create your MERLOT log in information.
