The Study Guides and Strategies Website is researched, authored, maintained and supported by Joe Landsberger as a learner-centric independent educational public service. There is no registration, nor distracting graphics or features, that may interfere with maximizing learner access.

Approximately 250 topics are divided into 20 sections: Time management, Problem solving, Learning, Learning with others, Online learning and communicating, Thinking, Studying, Clasroom participation, Reading (1 & 2), Research, Project management, Test preparation, Test taking, Writing basics, Writing types, American vocabulary/spelling, Resources, Math, Science and technology. SEctions have been added specifically for teachers and the workplace. Vocabulary and concepts are written at a middle school level. Content is translated by volunteers into 35 languages.

Traffic exceeds one million page views per month, with about nine million visitors annually. Audience includes students including returning adult, teachers, support professionals, and even parents. There are nearly 3,000 links (Altavista.com, October 2009) to the website, most from educational institutions. More documentation can be found at Study Guides and Strategies Annual reports.

Collaborative projects are developed across institutional, cultural and national boundaries. Permission is granted to freely copy, adapt, and distribute individual Study Guides in print format in non-commercial educational settings that benefit learners. No request to link to the Web site is necessary. Please be aware that the Guides welcome, and are under, continuous review and revision. For that reason, reproduction of all content on the Internet can only be with permission through a licensed agreement.
