DepEd warns against outdated, unaccredited learning materials online

The Department of Education (DepEd) warned against the unauthorized distribution of online learning materials which came from unknown sources or from old or outdated workbooks that are no longer used by the department.

Education Undersecretary Alain Pascua said the DepEd has received reports of outdated and unaccredited learning materials circulating online claiming to be from DepEd and its online repository of workbooks—DepEd Commons.

“Do not be hoodwinked by these emails purporting to be helping for a cause but are in fact misleading,” Pascua said in a statement.

“Our parents, learners, and teachers need only visit to access all of our learning materials for free,” he added.

Pascua urged parents, teachers, and students to be wary of the sources of the education material they download online.

“There are groups and individuals who are trying to discredit this administration by distributing these outdated and unaccredited learning materials for the use of our learners as part of the blended leaning approach, and using DepEd’s name for their credit,” he said.

The DepEd earlier warned against the selling of its free learning materials online as it reminded the public that these can be availed for free.

“All DepEd authorized and quality-assured materials are free, and they will be uploaded once finalized at the DepEd Commons where access and downloading will also be free,” Pascua said.
