What is the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth (VUSSC)? VUSSC provides some of the smallest countries with stronger economic opportunities through improved access to quality education. Through the VUSSC, learners from island nations in the Caribbean, Pacific, Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean, as well as small countries in Africa, gain online access to open educational resources (OERS) designed to meet the development needs of participating countries. These non-proprietary course materials are used in the offering of credit-bearing qualifications at post-secondary institutions in the participating countries, strengthening their educational capacity and outreach. The courses will eventually be made more widely available for adaptation and use.

This materials contained here were initially developed by the participants at the Samoa Boot Camp of the VUSSC – educators and representatives from participating VUSSC countries – the 4th in a series of Boot Camps being co-ordinated by the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) on behalf of the VUSSC.

This fourth Boot Camp was made possible and organised by the National University of Samoa, in collaboration with the Samoan Ministry of Education, Sport and Culture (MESC) and COL. It was made possible with funding from the Government of Singapore and The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Further modifications were made to the materials once the workshop participants returned to their home countries using collaborative Web 2.0 technologies. Final (or near final versions) are posted to a COL-hosted website for viewing and downloading and can be viewed at
