Journal Info Site
The Journal Info site from Lund University, Sweden helps researchers not only identify journals in a given field, but assess how likely they will be available to readers by giving library subscription cost, whether it allows open access or self-archiving, and alternatives that do.
The Student Assessment of their Learning Gains (SALG) website allows instructors to gather learning-focused feedback from students. The SALG survey asks students to rate how each component of a course (e.g., textbook, collaborative work, labs) helped them to learn, and to rate their gains toward achieving the course goals. The SALG survey can be customized to fit any college-level course, and can be administered multiple times per course.
