    • Why reuse matters
      • Reuse takes us beyond ‘good intentions’
      • Otherwise what are we sharing for?
      • Reuse of resources can feed into:
        • Sustainable e-learning
        • Making practice public
        • Keeping resources ‘alive’
        • A virtuous cycle of ‘openness’
      • But it’s not something we’re used to doing
      OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • OER and reuse
      • OER = RLO + open license
      • Investment in reuse potential ‘up front’
      • BUT will people want to reuse?
      • Reuse potential is reflection of:
        • Motivation of users
        • Quality of resource (measured variously)
        • Technology (low barriers)
      OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • In the beginning ...
      • There was a quest for sustainability
      • ChrisPegler
      • # oerday Key point (raised across strands) is sustainability. And changes in behaviour (they hope). 3:07 AM Jan 26th, 2009 via web
      • Did they manage it?
      OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • Not just a ‘Panda Project’? Pandas are not self-sustaining. You can keep them going, but they are always require support. "1600 pandas" Par WWF, Nantes, 4 avril 2009 http://www.flickr.com/photos/st3f4n/3411490323/ by Stéfan OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • So what is Sustainability?
      • Wikipedia – of course (11 th May 2010)
      ‘ Sustainability is the capacity to endure’ . It’s about survival beyond the short term. The end point in an ecological system? Reuse & Sustainability = signs of a healthy ecology? OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • Some ecology concepts
      • ‘ An information ecology is a complex system of parts and relationships. It exhibits diversity and experiences continual evolution. Different parts of an ecology coevolve . .. [there is] a sense of locality.’
      13/5/10 OER and Sustainability (Pegler) Nardi and O’Day (1999) First Monday 4 (5) http://www.firstmonday.org/issues/issue4_5/nardi_chapter4.html ‘ Monoculture - a fake, brittle ecology - gives sensational results for a short time, then completely fails.’ Robert Robertson, CETIS (OAI5, 2007) http://indico.cern.ch/getFile.py/access?contribId=11&sessionId=10&resId=1&materialId=slides&confId=5710 Eutrophication ‘promotes excessive plant growth and decay ... disrupts normal functioning of the ecosystem’
    • Where in the ecosystem are you?
      • Sustainability is viewed differently depending on who you are:
        • Funder
        • Practitioner
        • Institution
        • Community
      • Sustainable supply or sustainable demand?
      OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • The funder’s story OER and Sustainability (Pegler) By mtsofan http://www.flickr.com/photos/mtsofan/2450496004/ We’ve given you money to change your behaviour. We need to see change continuing – not just while the money lasts. 13/5/10
    • The practitioner
      • Supply: What’s in it for me once the money/support runs out? Motivation . Quality . Technology (Pegler, OER10)
      • Demand: Will it still be there once the project ends? Motivation . Quality . Technology (Pegler, OER10)
      OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • Institutional priorities OER and Sustainability (Pegler) Is it a showcase? Or a workspace? Or both? 13/5/10
    • Community view
      • Existing community
        • Does it make sense as part of it’s ‘portfolio’?
        • Does the community want it? Are they engaged?
        • How to resource this and new/other projects?
      • Newly created community
        • Does this new community work?
        • How can it carry on past funding?
      OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10
    • About SCORE 
