Free Resources During COVID-19 Disruptions

A list of free resources offered by publishers to ease the transition to remote instruction.

Teaching (Tests, Quizzes, Etc.)

TEACHING (tests, quizzes, etc)

Lumen (Open Education Resources)


Amid all this disruption and uncertainty, the Lumen Learning Team stands ready to assist with any rapid transition institutions and educators may be making to online learning, in order to reduce risk and slow the pace of transmission.

Lumen courseware is designed to help at-risk students succeed in digital environments, and we want to make our learning tools and team readily available wherever we may be helpful. We’re taking the following steps to help institutions resolve problems and get students through this term successfully.

  1. Live classes may shift to Lumen Waymaker or OHM courseware at no cost for the remainder of the term. For faculty members seeking a well-designed digital alternative or supplement to their current textbook, Lumen courseware may be a good fit. Course set-up is simple, and faculty can be ready to teach the same day they make the change. We also provide free services to support a successful transition. Learn More. 
  2. To support professional development, we’re introducing a series of short videos about effective digital teaching and learning using Lumen courseware. We’ll begin sharing them later this week on Lumen’s blog. Topics include:
  • Setting up your course in the LMS
  • Engaging students in virtual environments
  • Staying connected to students at a distance
  • Helping students become self-directed learners
  • And more!
  1. Lumen’s outstanding Support Team is available to assist with any needs. Reach out with support needs and general questions, including help for instructional designers, LMS administrators and others working with faculty to switch modalities using our courseware. Send a message to or schedule an Office Hours appointment for live virtual support.
  2. Lumen Community Slack can connect you with the Lumen Team, as well as faculty using Lumen courseware and other members of our community. Use this form to request an invitation to this collaboration tool.

Please reach out if the Lumen Team may be of help in any way possible during this period.

Oxford University Press / teaching activities


- free resources and access so that you and your students will experience as little disruption as possible. These include:

  • Access to digital, course-specific resources that you can use to flesh out your online "lectures"—including videos, simulations, animations, activities, flashcards, quizzes, test banks, PowerPoints, and more—that can all be loaded directly into your LMS
  • Instructions on how to access your desk copy as an eBook
  • Free access for your students to OUP Higher Education eBooks for the balance of this term
  • Free access to online courses from our sister company Epigeum to help you learn strategies for managing the digital classroom
  • Webinars for teaching specific disciplines online

We encourage you to check back regularly as we continue to update with additional resources. Please note: you don’t need to have adopted an OUP text to use these resources. In fact, we encourage you to share this email with any colleagues who you think will find these helpful.
