Welcome to the AHA Remote Teaching Portal, a space to share & find resources to make remote teaching easier during the COVID-19 crisis. Here you can search for materials to help you create or adapt your course, and share materials you have already created to help others.

If you have teaching resources to share, please email team at ahadigital dot org and we will happily add material for you. Especially useful are:

  • Pre-recorded online lectures which others can use
  • Model or sample syllabi
  • Examples of assignments or ready assignments people can reuse
  • Online textbooks and readings
  • Web resources, podcasts, and other online tools
  • Pedagogical guides and advice for remote teaching

To find material for use in a course, browse the headings below or search for keywords, and please check our Terms of Use.

N.B. Many of the pages below contain links entitled "Extra History." Extra History is a non-scholarly but thoroughly researched video series consisting of ~40 minute treatments of historical events and personages throughout time and place. While not an endpoint, the videos form an easily accessible introduction on topics ranging from the history of paper money to Warring States Japan.
