Title: Dow Jones Interactive Learning Center
Url: http://www.djaverages.com/flash/ilc/main.swf?debug=true&allowedDomain...
Publisher: Dow Jones & Co.
Description: The Dow Jones Industrial Average is considered to be an effective gauge of the U.S. economy, and overall investor sentiment. For those who keep close track of the Dow, it is something to be watched ever so closely. This website serves as a place to learn about the Dow in all its glory, ranging from pieces of trivia to a nice historical timeline. It’s probably best to start with the historical timeline. Here users will learn about what happened to the twelve original companies listed on the Dow when it first debuted on May 26, 1896. After that, they are free to move through the rest of the timeline, learning about the technological innovations that the Dow embraced over time, and also about some of the darkest days it has encountered. The trivia section is a true treat, as visitors can learn how much they would have today if their parents had invested $1,000 on the date of their birth, and then also find out about some of the Dow’s top performers over the past century or so.
