Strong Points: Wide diversity of resources, in content and resource type
Weak Points: None
It seems counterintuitive that the “NanoHUB” would be an enormous source of information, but that is in fact the case. NanoHUB is a wonderful website dedicated to…well, many things. Not only does it provide a great number of educational resources, it is also a site dedicated to nanotechnology research and collaboration among researchers. To have full access to all of the site’s features, one must complete a free registration. This creates a profile for each user that can be customized (if the user so wishes), and these profiles allow site users to connect with one another. The collection of resources is impressive in both size and diversity, with 12 different categories. These include, among others, animations, university courses, databases, publications, and miscellaneous teaching materials such as study guides and the like.
