The Covid-19 pandemic has forced Higher Education contact institutions to radically amend their planned assessments as they are forced to shift from face-to-face to emergency remote teaching.

As academics make these transitional shifts, they have to consider many issues such as students’ access to technological devices, data, internet connectivity, and select assessments which are best suited to their institutional contexts.

The Professional Development and Technology Enhanced Learning Collaborative Learning Communities (CLCs) held a webinar as follows:
