Music Theory Online Help: What are the best sites and working methods?

This is a very brief post about potential online websites that can assist with music theory. A few of my students asked me about this during the week – and I have found the following two sites that look interesting.

Teoria.Com

Music Theory.Net

For the moment, I am not considering Iphone apps – only web sites – and am interesting in two factors

1) Can anyone recommend any other sites that they have found useful

2) I am interested in stories from anyone who has found this sort of site useful

I am particularly interested in areas such as Key Signature construction and Identification, Mode construction and Identification, Chord construction and Identification. For the moment – I am not interested in ear training – although most would argue it goes hand in hand with what I have asked about.

Interested in any comments anyone may have.
