KELDAmed is an annotated database registering free medical e-learning
resources on the internet. Its entries range from text-collection to a specific
case simulation. The database is a complementary service of the Library for
the Medical Faculty of Mannheim, designed to simplify immersion into
content. For the searching, several criteria can be chosen from: Type of
media, subject area, keyword and date of publication. Further, users have the
option to comment on material or add new links that may be of interest
(educational material). The service is available both in German and English
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?
Annotations through experts are made which help users to find their way
through the learning materials. Users can not annotate further
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!
