CHORUS bills itself as "an international 'meta-resource' exploring and supporting the use of new media in the arts and humanities." As such, it fills in a gap that has existed in research aids available on the Internet for students and researchers of educational technology.

The archive of available materials at this site, sponsored by the University of California-Berkeley’s respected College Writing Program, is arranged in a variety of areas for ease of use.

The "Information Management" section, for example, collects a variety of links (often annotated), original articles, and product reviews concerning personal information manager or PIM software. The reviews and links are indexed according to the amount of information contained within as well (i.e., full-review, program summary or non-review) to assure the user of getting the kind of information they need.

Similar sub-sections of this sort are available for bible analysis, electronic research, and language learning. A "Composition" sub-section is currently under construction. A "Mixed Reviews" subsection collects reviews that don’t fit into the predetermined categories.

On the whole, CHORUS is an excellent jumping-on point both for those interested in purchasing the various forms of technological tools described within these pages as well as those looking to find strategies and positive role-models for implementing educational technology into their teaching.
