In the age of fast-paced, accessible, and efficient learning, the UP Open University (UPOU) Educational Media Production (EMP), Center for Open and Digital Teaching and Learning (CODTL) launched its program called FASTLearn or Flexible and Accelerated Short Micro-Videos for Teaching and Learning. 

FastLearn introduces an approach to knowledge dissemination through short, engaging videos. By delivering information in concise, bite-sized videos, the program caters to most learner’s preference for quick, focused content. Whether it’s learning about design thinking or how the global economy works, FASTLearn’s library of short videos include a vast array of topics discussed by experts..

According to Mr. Lexter Mangubat, CODTL-EMP Deputy Director, “One of the key features that sets FASTLearn apart is EMP’s commitment to provide content that is not only informative but are also highly engaging.” He added that  each video is carefully crafted to capture the viewer’s attention from start to finish, ensuring that the learning experience is both enjoyable and effective. 

These videos are available on the UPOU Networks website, the online repository of UPOU produced learning materials in various formats.  Watch the FASTLearn Series at
