[Historical Note:  Psybersite represents possibly the earliest example of student-generated educational content for the WWW, beginning with the publication of student projects for courses taught at Miami University by Richard Sherman in 1996 -- see examples a, b, and c.  For discussions of the pedagogical rationale and the important historical context of this approach, see Using the World Wide Web to teach applications of Social Psychology to everyday life(Sherman, 1998) , and Toward a "Miami Model" of internet-intensive higher education, (Wolfe et al., 1998). ]

Psybersite is a gateway to web tutorials on a variety of topics in the field of Psychology.   All of the educational modules available here have been created by advanced undergraduate and graduate students at Miami University.  They may be used for educational purposes, research, and general study, but please credit the authors and source.  All tutorials will remain viable through the year 2019, but are no longer being actively supported.  Creation of Psybersite was supported by a grant from the Learning Technologies and Enrichment Program at Miami University to Richard Sherman and Steve Hinkle.
