The Potted Learning Pages The Potted Learning Pages

"The Potted Learning Pages" celebrates the very best that the Internet has to offer, and went on line on 2003.09.11, the second Anniversary of the Twin Towers tragedy - witness to a world where people are working *together* to share freely what they have, to make life easier for others with less.

Each item in the table below is a "building block" of some kind - a potted-down block of information, small or large, that has its place in the overall learning process. See also our original massive subject-ordered page for Free Educational Resources Worldwide, the new Exam Subjects page, and our "Snapshot in Time" page, a fascinating overview of human development through the ages.

The links below include starting points across a wide range of themes. Most of these free resources are pretty special! and they're all informative in various ways. This page has taken quite some time to put together ... we hope you will enjoy its resources.

Update (11th November 2010): sadly some of these resources have disappeared in the intervening seven years :/ where possible we have modified the link to the root address, if the site still exists, and where not, we have infilled with a few of the newer dual-language resources on the site here, to minimise link breakages in the future. As you'll know from "The Journey" page, we may not always be around to replace them - but we trust that a significant percentage of the links below will stay valid indefinitely.
