Helpful Resources During Covid-19


Pearson: Higher education resources- Colleges and universities across the world are getting creative with online options to keep students safe and healthy at home. There’s help and information for faculty and students who may be new to virtual teaching and learning.

Macmillan Learning offers a variety of resources by discipline, topic, and product to help you navigate your new world of online teaching and learning.

Project MUSE For Instructors: More than ever, it is essential that faculty can easily find and access the online scholarship and course materials they require, so that they can focus on providing the best instruction possible. MUSE is here to serve course instructors with a brand new set of resources for discovering course content, facilitating online research, and helping to navigate the challenges and opportunities of e-learning. In our new For Instructors area, teaching faculty may:

  • Access over 40 temporarily free books and articles about online teaching and learning, from MUSE’s participating university press and non-profit scholarly publishers
  • Explore subject-specific lists of peer-reviewed content from MUSE suitable for use in courses and research
  • Review tips for incorporating MUSE journals and books in class use

Project MUSE will continue to update and build upon this set of resources for instructors, now and long after the COVID-19 crisis fades. Instructors are encouraged to visit, and sign up to receive regular updates to these resources.
