  • Why reuse matters
    • Reuse takes us beyond ‘good intentions’
    • Without reuse 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 reuse
    • OER = RLO + open license (Wiley, 2009)
    • Investment in reuse potential ‘up front’
    • BUT will people want to reuse?
    • Reuse potential is reflection of:
      • Motivation of users
      • Quality of resource (various measures)
      • Technology (low barriers) (Pegler, OER10)
    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. They require a lot of external effort to keep them going. They are ‘pets’. "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)
    OER and Sustainability (Pegler) 13/5/10 ‘ 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?
  • 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’
  • The OER ecosystem
    • 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
    • Demand: Will it still be there once the project ends? Motivation . Quality . Technology
    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 the ‘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
