Theater, Film, & Dance

SUNY OER Courses

SUNY OER Services offers template courses that can serve as starting points for your own development. You can mix, match, and adapt anything from the courses below quite easily.

These courses are delivered via the Lumen Learning platform, and can be integrated into your LMS (Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle) quite easily.

Unfortunately, at this time, open resources for theater, film, and dance materials are fairly sparse. Watch here for updates as they become available.

Additional Offerings

Beyond what’s already hosted inside the SUNY OER Services platform, many OER collections contain useful material for Arts and Music courses. If you have suggestions of public domain or Creative Commons content to add here, please let us know.
