On December 3, the National Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education Digital
Library (NSDL) becomes a public resource. Heavily funded by
NSF, the NSDL is the latest, and largest, of a number of online
sites intended to aid faculty and students in using available
resources to improve the quality of education at all levels.
These sites provide access to an array of resources for study,
but also provide tools for use by faculty in guiding student
learning. This talk will examine the types of tools and materials
accessible; and will look to the future to anticipate what
is coming and how these may affect education in computing.
