What is HumBox?
HumBox is a collection of more than 1000 humanities teaching resources that have been uploaded to the web for lecturers to use freely. You can browse and download from the collection without creating an account, however, if you would like to take advantage of a number of productivity tools built into the design, then register using the simple form, create a profile of yourself...and away you go! You can also upload your own teaching materials to teh collection from your profile page.
This discipline-based collection of Open Educational Resources (OERs) was launched in March 2010 and was developed collaboratively with three other cognate Subject centres: History, Language, Linguistics and Area Studies (LLAS), and Philosophy and Religious Studies (PRS). The project formed part of a wider JISC and Higher Education Academy funded OER programme which aims to make a wide range of learning resources created by academics freely available, easily discoverable and routinely re-usable.
If you are interested in joining the HumBox community and contributing your own resources, please read in the first instance the excellent text and video guides on the HumBox website. These will show you how to do it yourself. Alternatively, if you have a collection of teaching materials you would like to contribute to the collection but need further advice and/or assistance - please contact Brett Lucas at the Subject Centre.
