What: Founded by the Norm Davies Group, this site provides information and resources to help adults who are returning to college.
Best Points: It functions as a forum where adults can communicate and share educational experiences. Under the heading of "Library," there are several links to online class search sites, as well as other information. The study-tools page has links to subject areas like business, history, math, science, and general reference materials. You can access worldwide resources that allow you to investigate topics, such as the Mexican-American War Memorial, or the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. Another helpful feature, designed for international users, is a page with information on financial concerns, testing, ESL (English as a Second Language), and other issues.
What you need to know: The founders of this organization, Nancy and Norman Davies, created this support site because of their experiences in continuing education.
