FromEduResources Weblog–Higher Education Resources Online:
Every now and then I like to cite web locations that are aesthetically pleasing, i.e., they are just pleasurable to view and use: Film Australia is such a site. The contents of Film Australia are video clips organized by subject and curriculum. The display of the contents is colorful, efficient, and easy-to-use. Most of the items at Film Australia are, not surprisingly, too particular to Australian history (see for example, Harold Holt’s Briefcase) to be of general interest, but the quality and organization of the displays is worth emulating by other educational repositories. Take a look, you’ll like what you see. ____JH
