As the coronavirus pandemic is requiring many instructors to teach remotely with minimum preparation, many organizations have been creating online resources to support this work. In this section we showcase a short selection of sites that we have found particularly valuable.

Stories

There is so much we can learn from the stories of fellow educators who have engaged in digitally-rich educational initiatives – whether they were successful or not. As a start and as inspiration, we have collected a few short videos of novice online instructors and students reporting on their first online experiences. With your help, we plan to add more stories – both in video and narrative formats – relating to other aspects of Learning in the Digital Age in the near future.
