Online Resources for MPA/MPP Programs
NASPAA is working to develop materials faculty can immediately begin using in their shift to online coursework. Below are some initial resources.
As NASPAA develops additional videos for programs to download you can find them here. If you are interested in providing video resources for NASPAA to share with our members, please scroll down to the bottom of the page to see our Video Guidelines.

NASPAA Video Guidelines
During this unprecedented health crisis NASPAA appreciates faculty who are willing to create and share content regarding the handling of the crisis with other programs. Given the time constraints on faculty we are not scheduling webinars but are encouraging interested faculty to develop videos that NASPAA can post to this page. This will enable programs who would be interested in using the materials developed to incorporate them into their coursework as they see fit. Below are guidelines for the development of videos for posting on NASPAA’s Website.
- Length—Please keep videos to under 20 minutes, ideally videos would be between 10-15 minutes in length.
- Quality—NASPAA prefers videos that are completed using web conferencing technology such as Zoom or join.me. However, we will accept videos done on camera phones as long as they meet the following requirements:
- The video is steady (not shaky or hard to watch)
- The audio is clear
- The video is well lit
- Attribution—Upon submission of the video, you should provide the title NASPAA should use, a short description of the contents of the video, and the names and titles of anyone included in the video
- Purpose—You should include in your submission to NASPAA: what types of courses the video would we appropriate for (general PA, Local Gov’t, Federal Gov’t, budgeting, emergency management, etc.), the level appropriate for (graduate, undergraduate, all audiences), the topic of the video, and any competencies covered.
- Intellectual Property—Faculty retain the intellectual property of the materials provided to NASPAA and are responsible for the content (it should not be libelous, partisan, etc.)
NASPAA will review all videos submitted and have final approval over what is included on our website. If NASPAA chooses not to include a video submitted, we will notify the faculty of any reasons why so they may address them and resubmit if they wish.
How to Submit—You can submit videos by emailing them directly to firstname.lastname@example.org or by emailing the link to where they may be accessed (depending on file size).
We greatly appreciate faculty's willingness to develop and share materials during this time!
