This is an evolving list of disciplinary resources for teaching online amid disruption.  Check back often!



Creative and Performing Arts


The resources here (so far) predate our current moment, so they are not aimed at sudden shifts online--still, lots of good ideas and material here.

History/Classics/Art History

  • Resources from the National History Education Clearinghouse, written before the current moment.

  • The Digital Classroom:  Teaching History’s online teaching resource

  • AHA Digital Wiki: “A space to share & find resources to make remote teaching easier during the coronavirus crisis”AHA Digital Wiki: “A space to share & find resources to make remote teaching easier during the coronavirus crisis”

  • Perspectives on History: useful essays by historians on teaching in this moment


  • Ohio State University Press has made its Language Files textbook freely available online.


Composition/Writing Studies

  • The Global Society of Online Literacy Educators (GSOLE) Hub: Online?  Just in time!: This comprehensive, user-friendly resource designed for this moment of sudden transition points you to a forum where you can ask questions, free webinars on various dimensions of online writing instruction, and contact info for GSOLE.  The organization has sprung into action to provide people to answer questions and resources available to non-members.
  • Tips from Sara Webb-Sunderhaus, Miami of Ohio: Webb-Sunderhaus draws on her long experience teaching writing online to offer some specific tips for teaching online (e.g. boundaries around email responses, using audio responses) to manage a sudden transition.  It’s a nice combination of comforting and practical.
  • Online Writing Instruction Open Resource: “Teaching Online Write Now: Tips for Teaching Writing Online”
  • Tips for Teaching Writing Online: From the University of Arizona Writing Program and WAC director, this document has some links specific to UA’s writing curriculum, but most of the document will be helpful to anyone teaching writing.

Service-Learning or other Community-Based Courses

Service-Learning or Internship-based Courses: 

  • At UVM, all service-learning courses must transition non-classroom activities to remote delivery.  This includes for-credit internships.  The only non-classroom activities that can continue are practica in departments where these practica are licensing requirements. 
  • Resources will be posted to by Monday.  For assistance with ending service or transitioning it to remote, email CELO Director Susan Munkres at 

Resources for Students

  • Northwestern’s tips for graduate students: how to manage online courses (written for online learning in typical times)
  • Online students’ manual for success: emphasizes common problems students have and strategies for success (written for online learning in typical times)
  • Help! I didn’t sign up for this!: Texas A&M’s Dana Dang (Videographer and Editor)  Catharina Laporte (Producer) made this short video to help students adjust to fully online learning.  Friendly and helpful.
