Keep Teaching site was set up during 2009 H1N1 flu virus.
IU’s Keep Teaching website is helping numerous universities make a shift to remote teaching. Originally designed as a series of Knowledge Base documents during the 2009 H1N1 flu virus, the Keep Teaching site was later developed to help faculty prepare for remote teaching during campus closures and emergencies just like the coronavirus.
As described in Inside Higher Ed’s article, “Keep Calm and Keep Teaching,” IU has posted generous and clear guidelines for how to reuse the website materials. According to the IT News article, “When the class must go on,” colleges like the University of Maryland, Stanford University, and Pepperdine University were reaching out to use the Keep Teaching resources even before COVID-19.
