Teaching and Learning

The CUNY Academic Commons is for instructors and students at all CUNY campuses. The only thing you need to get started is your CUNY email address.

The CUNY Academic Commons is built on the open source framework called WordPress, a collaborative web project developed by millions of individuals contributing to shared source code. CUNY faculty and staff created and maintain the Commons, our own CUNY-dedicated WordPress platform. The Commons is free to use and can be customized to meet the needs of instructors and students.

Check out “Why teach on the Commons?” for more information on how the Commons supports open teaching and learning.
