ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) is the professional society for people in the computer science field. While most people know about professional societies not as many seem to be aware that many of them have student memberships that can be very valuable and quite cost effective. ACM is one of those.
Students can join for $19.00 at this location. What do they get for their money?
The online books and courses alone are a huge benefit as they give students resources for self-learning and for research. The magazines are great ways to keep up with new trends in the industry and in academia.
If you are a member or a teacher you can get brochures to give to your students from ACM. Visit here.
Are you a professional in the field and not an ACM member? Visit this link to find about benefits and to sign up for a professional membership.
The Microsoft Office Live team has created a free book entitled "Build a Web site That Sells" that may be useful in web design classes. The book "includes tips, techniques, and tools to help you design an effective and engaging Web site, generate more Web site traffic, maximize search engine results, provide a more secure online experience, and much more."
It's designed in part for customers of the Windows Office Live program which offers both free and paid services for business professionals but includes a lot of information that is useful for anyone who wants to create a professional or professional looking web site. Just the sort of supplemental material for a web design course. And of course the price (FREE) makes it the kind of tool schools can afford.
