Every person interested in education and training in the area of Humanitarian Action may use the online platform created as part of the EUHAP project. Its main objective is to provide free access to humanitarian education through the development and dissemination of interactive exercises structured around Open Educational Resources (OER) found online.

The online platform is available to all, free of charge and does not require users to register and/or log in. The main sources (databases, video clips, public lectures, etc.) to which all activities refer are ‘open’ sources, meaning that they are available and accessible to all internet users and therefore, do not necessitate user-permission.

Students & Humanitarian employees
Educators & trainers

You are a student or a humanitarian worker and are interested in testing your knowledge in humanitarian action or where to look for high-quality self-study materials?

You are providing training for humanitarian action and would like to explore supplementary forms of teaching and testing knowledge?
  

The internet is teeming with high quality, open-access resources that may be used for educational purposes. Some of these are intentionally produced as so-called Open Educational Resources (OER), such as lecture videos, training videos or language learning tools, while others are simply open access resources, such as databases, reports, scientific publications, videos, podcasts, etc., which are not directly intended as educational materials, but which can be used as part of educational activities.

The database of OER on Humanitarian Action has been compiled to assist learners, students and practitioners who have interest in the various issues and subjects within Humanitarian Action.

The platform presents learning activities built with the use of OER, categorised according to key subject areas pertaining to Humanitarian Action. These are:

  • Public Health
  • World Politics
  • International Humanitarian Law
  • Anthropology and Humanitarianism
  • Management.

Each of the categories is designed to develop and/or strengthen users’ basic knowledge in relation to the particular subject area. Each learning activity consists of the following components:

Learning Outcome: users are informed as to the skills/knowledge/competences they are expected to acquire through the completion of the particular learning exercise.
Introduction: the user is familiarised with the OER related to the particular learning activity
Activity: users are asked to complete a short exercise in relation to a particular OER in order to assess their skills/knowledge/competences in a particular subject area.

The e-learning activities can be used as stand-alone exercises to refresh your knowledge or as supplementary self-study elements in an online or blended course.

Educators in the field of Humanitarian Action are encouraged to bring students’ attention to these learning activities, as well as to use these exercises to supplement their teaching. To guide and motivate students, the EUHAP project goes beyond simply identifying and sharing these online resources, presenting them with a brief introduction, clear learning outcome(s), and a minor task or assignment that ensures that the students engage with and understand the arguments, dilemmas and/or themes that they are expected to learn from each activity.

The idea is for these learning activities to be used as self-study elements in an online or blended course. The exercises should build on knowledge and insights that the students gain through the course’s lectures or reading materials, and in a sense, augment the learning experience; e.g. by making students apply their knowledge for calculations, opening their eyes to the large amount of high quality secondary data that can be found, or familiarizing them with central web-tools and portals.

The learning activities are computer-evaluated and come in various forms, among which are: multiple choice questions, multiple selection format, pair-matching, numerical input, text input.
