This article surveys the four ELCs - Electronic Literature Collections (2006-2022), reviews pedagogical approaches to teaching ELCs, and situates ELCs and electronic literature pedagogy into higher education’s course management systems. ELCs’ increasing accessibility serves its global audience and centers the ethical values of diversity, equality, and inclusion. The ELC4’s user experience design manifests these values. The article discusses the history of the Collections’ experience design. Volume Four (2022) expanded reader accessibility and linguistic diversity by including video playthroughs and collecting 132 works from 42 author nationalities in 31 languages. This article surveys those evolving design changes. It engages a robust literature review of global electronic literature pedagogy. It features suggestions for thematic clusters of ELC4 works in a variety of subjects including literature, media studies, critical AI, identity theories and bibliotherapy. It concludes with a discussion of how electronic literature pedagogy fits within higher education’s ecosystem.
