April's featured site is at http://www.utexas.edu/student/utlc/, the Learning Center site of the University of Texas, Austin. Completely utilitarian, features are hyperlinked to topics like making the grade, study strategies, and Trig and Calculus handouts. All have numerous sub-links containing a wide variety of useful study methods. (I recommend a visit to Karl's Calculus Tutor on the Pre-Calc and Calculus Assistance site.) There are links to other Learning Resource centers, and for Learning Center personnel, there is a link to a presentation on data collections methods from the NADE 2003 conference. Unrelated to the UT site, I want to include an additional site developed and maintained by Professor Michael Harvey of Washington College, Maryland (http://nutsandbolts.washcoll.edu). This easily navigable site is chock-full of writing tools a college student might need, all just a mouse-click away. Besides answers to most writing questions - or help alleviating writer's block - under headings like structure, thinking, and style, there are hyperlinks to MLA, APA, Chicago, or CBE sites included. What makes this site particularly helpful is that examples are given to underscore each section's material.
