  • 3. Focus of the project• Universities• Schools• …and paying attention to the non-tertiarypost-secondary subsector (the ‘colleges’), asthey are often loci of the kind of informallearning that OER facilitates and this sector iscrucial to skills development
  • 4. Selecting countries for study• Not all in Europe – with some notable exceptions, manyEuropean countries are not yet active in OER• Only highlights from the USA – ever-changing and too muchto document fully• Outside Europe, concentrated on countries with linguistic,cultural or political links with countries in Europe• Liaised with organisations such as IPTS, UNESCO IITEMoscow, OER U/WikiEducator, CommOER/Wikipedia & OERAsia to avoid duplication of countries being studied in otherprojects

  • 6. Seven case studies of OER communities• Three schools-focussed projects:– Wikiwijs (Netherlands);– Bookinprogress (Italy);– Hwb (Wales) – dropped out• Three HE-focussed projects:– OER U;– Futurelearn (UK) – not certain;– Canadian OER HE community• One MOOC-based project to cover informal adult learning
  • 7. Policy focus• Original focus was at ‘national’ level (includinggovernments of devolved administrations)• But in the increasingly regionalised and part-privatised education environment, it is nowfelt more appropriate to focus on policies forinstitutions, consortia and private sectorchange facilitators
  • 8. Policy formulationAlthough not scheduled until the second halfof the project, requirements from EU entities(including IPTS and the Open EducationExperts Group), UNESCO and some nationalgovernments have meant that policy workstarted in June 2012 and is continuingthroughout 2013.
