The website provides a variety of engaging, up-to-date materials and resources for teachers' professional development and for use with students in the classroom. It also offers free, high-quality, non-commercial English language learning resources directly to public audiences and strengthens the skills of English teachers and teacher trainers.

The video game Trace Effects, an expanded webinar series, distance education programs and other innovative, interactive elements are available on the site.

Trace Effects , a 3D video game experience geared for students ages 12-16, supplements classroom English lessons.
