Online Resources for Intro Psych Students

About.com: Psychology Basics – http://psychology.about.com/od/psychology101/u/psychology-basics.htm#s1
This material offers an introduction to the study of psychology, summarizing many of the topics discussed in introductory courses. This site is good for review or even for previewing coming chapters in your course. Users can also explore the other psychology sections by About.com, including Theories and Experiments for more details, or they can take quizzes to test their knowledge or examine their personalities.

AllPsychONLINE – The Virtual Psychology Classroom – http://allpsych.com/
This site includes brief online texts – Psychology 101, Statistics Primer, Personality Synopsis, and Research Methods – that offer synopses of the most commonly studied aspects of psychology with accompanying quizzes. I recommend this site for students who want to quickly review and test their overall understanding of key psychology concepts.

SparkNotes Psychology Study Guides – http://www.sparknotes.com/psychology/
The study guides at SparkNotes succinctly cover the information generally presented in introductory psychology courses. Users may also consult the list of major psychology figures and the psychology glossary.

Originally produced in 1990 and updated in 2001, this 26-part video series  is familiar to countless students of high school and college level intro psych. It contains hours of student-friendly discussion and illustration of key psychological concepts.

These videos, from Fall 2007, present an “introduction to the principal areas, problems, and concepts of psychology” through the actual course lectures of Professor John F. Kihlstrom.
