Free Resources for your Courses: Home


For some courses it's possible to create your own custom list of readings, videos, etc. instead of using a textbook.
There are lots of places to find free, high quality resources for your courses:
  • articles and online videos from library databases
  • articles from Open Access journals
  • scanned articles or book chapters (with some conditions)
  • online videos from internet sites like YouTube or Vimeo
  • blogs, wikis, or any other internet site

This guide will offer some advice for using these types of materials in your course.
