  • 1. CORE-Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment - for Materials “The UK must have a core of open access learning resources organised in a coherent way, to support on-line and blended learning by all higher education institutions, and to make it more widely available in non-HE environments.” (Sir Ron Cooke, 2008) CORE-Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
  • 2. Introduction • Contributors have/are making their teaching and training resources available (images, videos, presentations, etc) in collaboration with the CORE-Materials team • Over 1,200 learning and teaching resources now for use, sharing and re-purposing – with strategies for expansion • Value-added to existing resources, which are promoted worldwide and available via: • the CORE-Materials website • Web 2.0 file-sharing sites • JorumOpen national repository CORE - Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
  • 3. CORE-Materials COLLABORATIVE OPEN RESOURCES - FOR MATERIALS CORE-Materials Website These resources CORE are subject to OPEN Materials Copyright 20 project partners …provide e-Learning Legal (IPR) and …enables release of OERs from HE, FE, resources: videos, technical input from via a range of services industry and images, case studies, CORE-Materials under Creative Commons professional body… lectures, etc. project team… licenses
  • 4. Sustainability (1) ‘Sustainability’ as a discussion topic running constantly throughout the lifetime of CORE-Materials – This helped identify early barriers to OER release / use, and informed planning of project impact and development Promotion of CORE-Materials through the national Subject Centre: UKCME – Drawing on UKCME’s identified community of users; Incorporating awareness of OER issues into UKCME events and training courses (targeted at New Lecturers, Student Representatives, Post-Graduate Demonstrators, Programme Leaders) CORE - Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
  • 5. Sustainability (2) Sharing lessons learned; e.g. technical, legal, institutional, evaluative Discipline-specific CORE-Materials repository – includes a user-interface with a faceted search facility “TMS [in March 2010] suggest that, at the least, all U.S. materials departments and societies should be aware of the products of CORE- Materials and learn from their concept and processes. At the best, there may be ways of collaborating that could benefit all parties." Guidance documentation – (e.g. IPR, Consortium Agreements, institution engagement, uploading, etc) CORE - Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
  • 6. Sustainability (3) Promotion of added-value functions gained from developing and using ‘open’ resources: Resources shared via Web 2.0 file-sharing sites – providing enhanced functionality and tracking of OERs Portability of OERs – multi-file FlashTM resources can be run independently on a user’s own system Curriculum content – existing courses enhanced and modules / programmes developed with OERs CORE - Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
  • 7. Subject Strand CORE-Materials COLLABORATIVE OPEN RESOURCES - FOR MATERIALS
  • 8. Sustainability (4) Highlighting benefits to both ‘communities of practice’ and the HE sector / industry: Resource Guides – developed in collaboration with the subject community and institutional senior managers “Don’t start by asking who will pay for your content, but ask who will pay attention, who will trust you, who will follow you – and work with all involved parties to convert that attention into income.” (Leonard, 2009) Personal Learning Environments – demonstrating resource collections and OERs for learners CORE - Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
  • 9. In Summary Focus on sustainability from the start (seeing it similar to project dissemination and evaluation) Look to share lessons learned – e.g. project successes, outputs and outcomes – with others Actively promote added-value features emerging from the project to both existing and new users Look to support communities of practice, and partner institutions, in their OER release strategies CORE - Materials: Collaborative Open Resource Environment – for Materials
