This page was originally designed to suggest resources which might have been suitable for schoolchildren and undergraduate students undertaking home learning in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Emphasis has been placed on products which are available online, thereby avoiding the need for purchase of equipment.

Neither Norecopa nor its staff have financial interests in any of the resources mentioned here or on other pages on the Norecopa website. This list is purely to give teachers and pupils a potential starting-point for some of the many resources available (see Norecopa's NORINA database). Norecopa does not take any responsibility for errors on its website, which is made available purely as a service to the global community. We have not studied all the resources in detail and we do not supply any of these resources ourselves. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement of their quality or accuracy, for which we accept no responsibility. Users are encouraged to check with the suppliers that the prices of products listed on the Norecopa website are up-to-date.
Please report any inaccuracies to We welcome suggestions for additional resources, including other subject areas to be covered.
