Humanities in Class Digital Library
The National Humanities Center has launched the Humanities in Class Digital Library, an Open Education Resource (OER)-based repository that collects and combines the best in humanities scholarship and education for use in the K-12 and collegiate classroom. Scholars share their research in a variety of forms (video lectures, primary source collections, essays, articles, etc.), and educators submit any type of instructional resource (lesson, activity, assessment, research, essay, guide, etc.). Members can modify and remix these materials as well as publish their own resources with direct citation. In addition to NHC materials, numerous organizations from all humanities disciplines have also contributed resources – including the National Council for Teachers of English, the Jane Austen Summer Program at the University of North Carolina, and the Huntington Library in Pasadena.
No funding is required. Membership is free, and the HICDL connects seamlessly with Google Classroom and most Learning Management Systems. All materials are free and come with Creative Commons open license. The HICDL is quickly becoming a makerspace for humanities education innovation with new members and resources being added daily.
