6 October 2020

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, UNESCO IITE together with its global partners developed a number of open-access Russian-language resources to minimize the educational disruption, facilitate the continuity of learning and assist educators in CIS and other Russian-speaking countries.

  • The open online course Digital Tools and Services for Teachers aimed at building the capacity of teachers in the field of innovative technologies and improving the quality of teaching. Based on UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers, the course seeks to train teachers to use new educational resources, tools, and services and help them in their professional development and strengthening their skills in the use of ICT in education.
  • The Russian version of the video lectures Teaching in a Digital Age produced by Dr. Tony Bates, renowned expert in the field of online and distance education, with the support of the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) in order to advocate the importance of digital competencies for quality education. The lectures offer theoretical and practical tips to improve the quality of teaching in campus-based, blended or fully online learning environments.
  • The Russian version of the free crash course Be an Online Tutor in 24 Hours developed in cooperation with the Hamdan Bin Mohammed Smart University (HBMSU, UAE) in order to assist educators in reshaping their workplace for efficient online teaching and to provide recommendations and technical support to master common authoring tools for collaborative online learning.
