The Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak has universities and institutions around the world closing their campuses -- as of 3 March, 290 million students globally [https://en.unesco.org/news/290-million-students-out-school-due-covid-19-... are out of school for COVID-19. But that doesn't mean that students can't continue learning.
NextGenU.org is joining forces with Nurses International and others to offer public health and clinical courses for free during the traveling and gathering restrictions so that learning institutions can remain strong and students/faculty don't waste valuable academic time, or get sick. Faculty/educators who don't have online materials can use these free, online courses, and assign coursework to students that align with their learning objectives.
Might your program be interested in joining a collaboration of organizations offering online content to help protect students and universities during traveling and gathering restrictions? We're leading a "Share a Course, Not a Virus -- COVID-19 Initiative", and we would love to have your collaboration.
