    • Template Sections for completion: Case Study Title: Akleon Case Study Country: Germany Type of organisation described by the case study, address of organisation, hyperlink to organisation, hyperlink to case study source: HE http://www.akleon.de Case Study Contributed by: Ulf Ehlers Sections 1-10 1. Mandatory - A brief summary of the institution to be used as a case study About 500 words please on a description of the institution, its OER history and approach. AKLEON is a result of the project META-AKAD, which had the goal to provide users with a uniform access to a broad variety of teaching and learning material available on the web. The service is being used by teachers, who can include the provided material in their courses, as well as learners, who are being provided with material for their private studies. The project created an innovative pilot-service by developing and launching appropriate technological means and setting up functioning organizational structures. It thus enables efficient use of electronic resources for teaching purposes, as well as fast, broad access to documents available on the internet, tailored to the respective user’s demands. This novel user-service was created exemplary for the subjects Math, Physics, German studies, Psychology and Biology; however, it was designed with the option to expand it to all disciplines. Three search functions exist: • Simple search (full-text-search) • Advanced search (full-text search in combination with specific search for meta data) • Search by classification data Means of evaluation are planned, though not yet implemented. The project’s main points of focus are: • Collection of material • Bibliothecal classification
    • • Quality inspection and rating of documents • Data management system • Web-based access to meta data collection 2. Quality – OER/OEP How does the institution approach quality in OER? Is there any current indication of a quality concept or process? Does the institution perceive quality from the perspective of the quality of open educational resources or the quality of open educational practice? How does the institution show quality through OEP versus quality of OEP? What methods, concepts and practices are used to enhance the quality of OEP? Means of evaluation are planned, though not yet implemented. The focus is on building access (a collection of web-links). 3. Innovation How can OER/OEP innovate educational practices? What current innovative practices are there in the institution? Please do not regard innovation from just a technology perspective! Option to upload/suggest learning material. The service is being used by teachers, who can include the provided material in their courses, as well as learners, who are being provided with material for their private studies. 4. Policy What are the current OER/OEP policy arrangements at institutional and national level across Europe/the World? 5. Actors What actors are involved in OER/OEP? Is there any evidence to show that OER actors do not always promote OEP but “only” access to OER? • Teachers • Learners 6. Initiatives What OER/OEP initiatives can be evidenced? Is there any evidence to show that OER initiatives do not always promote OEP but “only” access to OER? Not in this case- only access. 7. Open Educational Practices Can you identify some case studies/ descriptions which form the illustrative base for a more general model of OEP? Not from this case. 8. Tools and Repositories What tools and repositories are being used to deliver OER/OEP? For example GLOW, Connexions
    • Are there any other special tools for OER/OEP? e.g. Cloudworks, in which practices can be discussed and validated? Are there any tools for Visualisation? e.g CompendiumLD Are there any tools for Argumentation? e.g. Cohere AKLEON is a repository. 9. Strategies Can you identify any strategies for organisations to use OER/OEP? Can you identify any business models that promote OER/OEP? Access and Exchange. 10. Current barriers and enablers What are the barriers to the use of OER/OEP? Is there any evidence to how these barriers have been overcome? What are the enablers to the use of OER/ OEP?
