Cambridge, MA, March 12, 2020. As a growing number of colleges, universities, and secondary schools are moving classes online “until further notice” to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, many faculty face a difficult mid-term pivot from classroom to online instruction -- with virtually no time to prepare for the very different challenges of remote education. To address this rapidly emerging need, JoVE has announced that it will provide free access to all its educational video content through June 15, 2020.

“JoVE wants to help students and educators to mitigate disruption from COVID-19 containment efforts during the spring semester,” announced Moshe Pritsker, Ph.D., JoVE CEO and Co-founder. He explained, “It’s an opportunity for us to give back to our community when flexibility and adaptability are crucial. JoVE’s visual learning resources can help educators and students continue their work without missing a beat.” 

The offer includes free access to the following resources:

  • JoVE Core – a video textbook that isolates and visually presents core concepts to improve learning comprehension. 
  • JoVE Science Education – a collection of simple, easy-to-understand video demonstrations in eight STEM fields.
  • Lab Manual – comprehensive, curriculum-focused videos for introductory biology lab courses.

If needed, JoVE Curriculum specialists are available to help faculty map JoVE videos to their curriculum, also at no charge. Claire Winthrop, JoVE’s Director of Customer Success notes, “Our Curriculum specialists have extensive experience partnering with faculty on embedding JoVE videos in their courses.”  

“As the world navigates the uncharted territory of a global pandemic in the digital age, recent communications and educational technology advances will be tested. What we learn from the experience will better prepare us for future challenges,” said Dr. Pritsker.
