Welcome to Semester Zero. It is a FREE online self-paced programme designed to help students make a smooth transition into their first semester at USP. The 6-week programme encompasses a range of fun activities and games tailored to orient prospective students on all that we have to offer at the premier institution of higher learning for our region, USP.

LS4ODFL is designed to provide you with an opportunity to engage with the course materials, learning challenges and one another and develop ideas to improve learner support in open, distance and flexible learning contexts.

You have been teaching online, but what have you been assessing? Can assessment also be about teaching? How do you know students have learned? It is easy to forget that instead of being separate processes, teaching and assessment have a close relationship – they complement one another and comprise a holistic educational process. In this course, we explore online activity-based assessment to support teaching and learning.

On successful completion of this short course learners will design online activity-based assessment to support teaching and learning.

Target audience: Pacific teachers

Free and open to all.

This course provides an introduction to Open Educational Resources (OER) and their potential impact on teaching and learning. You will learn about the benefits of using OER, how to find and evaluate OER materials, and how to incorporate them into their teaching practices. The course will cover topics such as copyright and licensing, open licensing, Creative Commons, and OER repositories. You will also have the opportunity to create and share their own OER materials.
