Online Accelerated Postgraduate Support Programme

Foundational Academic Integrity Development MOOC

We can all agree that academic writing – especially on an advanced postgraduate level – is not something that comes easily. We are tasked with writing in a way that meets the requirements and standards of our Institution and that best showcases our arguments and contributions.

The bad news is that just academic reading alone often does not help us with all the skills we need. The good news is that we’ve got you!

In order to accelerate your skills in academic writing, and writing with academic integrity, you are invited to join a three-week MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) on Academic Writing and Integrity. For members of the Online Accelerated Postgraduate Support Programme, this MOOC is free, and you can join any time (the first intake is within the first two weeks of September).

Here is how:

  1. Go to https://mooc.unisa.ac.za/portal
  2. If you are a first time visitor to this site and want to access the MOOCs offered by Unisa, you first need to self-register:
    • Click the tab “New Account” (Link panel on the left-hand side of the screen).
    • You will then be prompted to complete a registration sheet, where you can choose your own “User ID” and “Password”.
  3. Once you have completed the registration process, you can then click “Membership”. After clicking “Membership”, click “Joinable Sites”.
  4. Here you will find a list of MOOCs available to you. Click the MOOC you want to join, in this case: UOL018-Academic Integrity
