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.
