Online Teaching Resources

  • Netflix has moved some of their  Educational Documentaries to their YouTube channel to make it easier to share during remote teaching.


  • Explore and reuse millions of digital items from the Smithsonian’s Open Access collections (2.8 million at February 2020 launch). These 2D and 3D images and data have been released into the public domain as Creative Commons Zero (CC0), meaning you can use, transform, and share our open access assets without asking permission from the Smithsonian.



  • Pearson is offering additional resources for online instruction for faculty members.  From strategies to keeping students motivated, faculty members can browse mutliple links to find what they need or are interested in.  Just click on the "Higher Ed Resources" box on the left.


  • Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) provides open access to millions of images, videos and texts.  There is an Education Guide of primary sources that explores topics in history, literature and culture.


  • MoMA is temporarily closed to help New York City and our global community curb the spread of the coronavirus outbreak. With this in mind,  immerse yourself in ideas and see your world in new ways through art.  In MoMA’s free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on Coursera, you will hear directly from artists and designers, look closely at works in our collection and exhibitions, and join a community of learners, unlike any other.
