The main product of Project Educate has been a series of Web-based self-paced user education courses called Into Info.

As well as providing users with skills in using the information resources, the Into Info modules act like an annotated bibliography of the highest-quality resources in each discipline area. In this way, users of the modules learn simultaneously how to access resources and which are the best to access.

These courses are both used within the member universities and site-licensed to other universities for use in their own user-education programs.
