- Photonics Wiki
- The photonics wiki is an online textbook covering the major science content relevant to CMDITR researchers. It also has professional development articles and links to K-12 educational materials, videos and simulations. Eventually this content will be available through the National Science Digital Library
- Responsible Conduct of Research
This web-based certification consists of three modules: Rights and Obligations; Collaboration, Communication, and Grants Management; and Intellectual Property. All CMDITR participants are required to complete these tutorials, which they can access from the Members Only website. The modules are available to the public for educational purposes at: www.responsibleresearch.org.
