In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, many colleges and universities are making the difficult decision to move to remote teaching and learning models.

JoVE is happy to provide all of our Education video content free to use in STEM teaching efforts through June 15th.
JoVE Core – isolate key scientific concepts and visualize them to maximize learning comprehension. This video textbook, available in Biology and Social Psychology, can be used as primary teaching resource or a supplement to teaching materials.

OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
our colleagues at Epigeum, part of Oxford University Press, have made their courses on Teaching Online and Blended Learning freely available until the end of May in order to help those tackling distance learning for the first time. For more information, please visit here
Among the publishers currently opting to make content free on Project MUSE are Johns Hopkins University Press (all books and journals), Ohio State University Press (all books and journals), University of Nebraska Press (all books and journals), University of North Carolina Press (all books), Temple University Press (all books), and Vanderbilt University Press (selected books). We expect to announce additional participants and will continually update the list of publishers offering free access to content.
Content that is freely available on the Project MUSE platform during the COVID-19 crisis will display a distinctive “Free” icon, different from the “OA” icon used for fully open access content on MUSE, or the familiar green checkmark that users associate with content held by their library. MUSE search results, by default, include any content to which a user has access, so will offer the researcher any relevant free, OA, or entitled articles and books. There are over 2000 open access books and a small number of fully OA journals on the MUSE platform.
ProQuest Ebook Central customers impacted by COVID-19 will get automatic upgrades to unlimited concurrent access (from single user or 3U) to all owned titles through mid-June.

This means that all licenses – including single-user and three-user models – will automatically convert to unlimited access during this period.
