Online Teaching & Learning Resources

The teaching and learning resources on this page are intended to be used to help instructors apply SPCS Guiding Principles to online learning environments.

There are thousands of resources that could be included in this list. We’ve curated these resources from among personal experience and recommendations from our own faculty and educators around the world for use in online instruction. We start with resources available from the University of Richmond, then from third-party providers.

We’ve organized these resources by instructional purpose and learning outcomes, and often include multiple tools for similar uses to address platform compatibility and level of comfort integrating learning technologies.
