sMOOC Student Survival Guide


We are currently piloting a new sMOOC ( Short Massive Open Online Course )

The OER Wales Cymru Pilot Student Survival sMOOC is our first ever online course that offers advice on preparing for university.

We have recruited current students to help us test the course environment and offer feedback so we can ensure our future output is as innovative and relevant as possible. These students will act as Co-Creators of the course and provide valuable input in terms of curriculum and course design.

Although Students won’t receive any academic credit for taking part, they will receive an open digital badge and hopefully feel a little bit more prepared for university at the same time.

The course is not about academic skills, but aimed at developing the life skills that students will need as they embark on a university experience. It doesn’t matter which university they are expecting to attend as the course is a generic course applicable to any university course.

We expect to finish our pilot stage by November.
