Dear [First Name]

We are pleased that you are still with us and have had the opportunity to participate in the learning pathways for Digital literacies for online learning (LiDA101). Don't worry if you have fallen a little behind schedule, you will find copies of the instructions for previous sessions on the course site.

You are now in a position to think about assessment and certification options to validate your learning. You can prepare an assessment for submission working at your own pace, and submit this when you are ready. As an open course, the materials for Digital literacies for online learning (LiDA101) will remain open and accessible.

Today we:
Thank you for your participation!

Best wishes
LiDA team.

Certificate of participation

Each micro-course has an online knowledge test built into it. A certificate of participation could be useful, for example, to give evidence to a potential or current employer of:
  •  your commitment to expanding your knowledge in this area, and
  •  a basic level of knowledge of the topic.
If you pass the knowledge test, OERu will provide you with evidence in the form of a digital badge (no charge) or a PDF certificate combined with an electronic badge (NZ$10 contribution to cover administrative costs).

For more information on this option, read the: How to certify participation page.

Earn a micro-credential

You have the option of earning a micro-credential for Digital literacies for online learning from EduBits, an assessment service provided by Otago Polytechnic. Micro-credential assessments are small enough to be manageable for busy people, but big enough to be meaningful to employers. Micro-credentials can be accumulated, and can then be applied to gain formal academic credit for the Learning in a Digital Age course.

For more information on this option, read the: Stackable micro-credentials page.

Academic credit towards an exit qualification

You can complete three or four micro-courses and the required assessment to achieve academic credit for the Learning in a Digital Age course. There are two qualification options:
  1. Certificate of Higher Education Business, a United Kingdom-based qualification conferred by the University of the Highlands (you are required to complete four micro-courses), or
  2. Undergraduate Certificate in First Year Foundations, a United States-based qualification conferred by Thomas Edison State University (you are required to complete three micro-courses).
Please note: There are different assessments depending on the exit qualification you are pursuing.

For more information and instructions on submitting assessments, please consult the assessment options page on the course site.
