Welcome to MLA Commons, the scholarly network for MLA members. Discover the latest open-access scholarship and teaching materials, join language and literature discussion groups, build a WordPress Web site for a class or conference—or to showcase your own work—and grow your readership by uploading materials to CORE, our open-access repository.
Bringing Your Course Online
As campuses move classes online in response to COVID-19, you may be looking for guidance to quickly bring your face-to-face or hybrid course fully online. On the MLA's Bringing Your Course Online Commons site, find strategies for teaching remotely, information addressing questions of equity and accessibility, and a collection of resource guides.
Add your suggestions or questions by submitting a resource on the site or contacting mla [at] hcommons.org.
New Theme for Course Sites
Create a site on the Commons and check off Is this a course site? and you'll get a site with the Learning Space theme activated with spaces for your syllabus, lessons, assignments, course documents, and events. Visit the Learning Space Demo site and learn more!
