University faculties are under increasing pressure to do more with less. They are expected to continuously improve educational experiences to more students at less expense. Without help, the increasing demands and decreasing resources may prove too great. Merlot is a project designed to provide quality, online exercises to enhance the learning experience. The materials in Merlot are peer reviewed by both experts in the discipline and users of the materials. Quality of content, potential effectiveness as a teaching tool, and ease of use are the key areas of review process. This paper provides a explanation of Merlot, the peer review process, and examples of Merlot modules in business.
