Getting started with “DEPED COMMONS” Deped online platform for learning

  • by

The DepEd Commons is an online platform for public school teachers to support distance learning modalities. It was designed as a direct solution to give access to online review materials and Open Educational Resources (OER) during class suspensions and other similar circumstances.

OERs in DepEd Commons are authored by public school teachers who are subject experts, properly cited and acknowledged. Teachers can retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute the content by blending it with a learning management system to deliver a distance learning modality.

“As a teacher po nila, I can say na napakalaking tulong po sa mga bata nito lalo na po na nakahome quarantine. Masasabi ko po na this is the best way to continue their learnings even without their teachers. Nag eenjoy na sila, natututo pa,” teacher Alleluia Romero

We acknowledge the reality of the situation wherein DepEd Commons and its OER are not accessible to all teachers and learners. Many of our schools still do not have connectivity and access to the Internet. But in this extraordinary situation we find ourselves in, we must walk before we run. We must start somewhere and work our way towards the ideal where all teachers and learners in the country can access such resources. Until that time, we offer DepEd Commons and OERs to those who can make use of them, as we continue to work for the connectivity of all our schools and offices.

Those who do not have access to these requirements can opt for paper-based homework and are not required to visit internet cafés for health security, they have closed anyway in quarantined areas.

They have the discretion to adopt appropriate modalities of instruction provided that they follow strict compliance to the guidelines, policies, and reminders given by DepEd. – Usec. Alain del Pascua

“Education must continue even in times of crisis whether it may be a calamity, disaster, emergency, quarantine, or even war.” – Sec. Leonor “Liling” Magtolis Briones
