Enchanted learning

Enchanted Learning is a Web site with a large number of simple resources produced by a teacher(?). A colleague uses this Web site for quick lesson ideas when covering absence in the SLDD section, and she really appreciated the resources on offer. The site asked for a small donation to cover the costs of running a large Web presence.

Recently the site has changed over to charging $20 up front for a basic membership lasting a year going to $75 for a site wide log-in. I dropped the plastic to allow the colleague to continue using the site – and I suppose those who build a decent resource will always be entitled to ask for some return. Nielsen and Norman would have plenty to say about the interface design (and the e-commerce experience).

I hope teachers continue to build Web sites passing on a few ideas and a small sample of materials for free and for easy access (no passwords, no hassle).
