Online learning and teaching have remained at the periphery of discussions about teaching Pacific history, and universities were unprepared for the shift to online spaces forced by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic this year. It is timely for those teaching Pacific courses online to consider the lessons learnt from the University of the South Pacific History Department, which has been teaching online for the past four years. Experiments with collaborative content curation have highlighted the challenges associated with adapting new forms of technology in a Pacific regional context and the possibilities for regional collaboration and cooperation.
