Saide is currently sending out short communications via its OER Africa initiative to assist academics with various aspects of remote teaching during the Covid-19 crisis. The latest is one on OpenCourseWare (OCW): courses created at universities and published for free via the Internet. OCW can assist academics in higher education to improve their own offerings, and encourage them to share their own courses for the benefit of others. OCW can also assist students wishing to access courses within higher education that otherwise might not be available to them. 

The post on the OER Africa website explains how OCW contrasts with MOOCs, and lists some sites for finding useful courses, both internationally and within Africa.
