Online Psychology Labaratory (OPL)

The Online Psychology Laboratory! OPL provides highly interactive resources for the teaching of psychological science. The peer-reviewed materials include online studies and correlational studies, large data sets, demonstrations, and teaching aids.

There are currently over twenty-five different studies students can partake in, each approved by an Advisory Board of instructors from all levels. Most of the activities require a Macromedia Authorware plugin.

Teachers can sign up to have their student's data collected and analyzed at a future date. A Teacher Tour section provides assistance for teachers using OPL in their classrooms.

The OPL can be found at http://opl.apa.org/Main.aspx

Anyone out there using this? I'd love to hear about your experiences. I tried it quite a while ago when it was in "beta" and my school's technology didn't support it, but I bet its much smoother now.
