OER Institutional Strand Meeting 9.6.09

  1. 1. OER Institutional Strand Meeting Open Educational Resources Programme Start-up Day – 9 June 2009 <ul><li>This presentation: </li></ul><ul><li>Welcome & overview </li></ul><ul><li>Over to you! </li></ul>
  2. 2. the activity <ul><li>Each project has 5 mins ( max ) to: </li></ul><ul><li>Give your name(s) </li></ul><ul><li>Share anything you would be particularly keen to make connections over with other projects </li></ul><ul><li>And (if there is time), tell the group: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>what you think will be the hardest thing in your project </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>what you are most looking forward to </li></ul></ul><ul><li>BERLiN </li></ul><ul><li>Unicycle </li></ul><ul><li>Open Exeter </li></ul><ul><li>OpenStaffs </li></ul><ul><li>OTTER </li></ul><ul><li>Open Spires </li></ul><ul><li>Open Content Employability Project </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>BERLiN will enhance and expand Nottingham’s existing Open Educational Repository, u-Now, one of the first OERs in the UK and a member of the international Open Courseware Consortium. Through providing guidance and advice, BERLiN will benefit the whole of the UK sector by disseminating our experiences, as well as the outcomes of the project itself which is aimed at exploring the issues raised in the wider take-up and development of an OER. </li></ul><ul><li>http://unow.nottingham.ac.uk/berlin.html </li></ul><ul><li>Andrew Beggan </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>BERLiN
  4. 4. BERLiN <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>Getting staff buy-in - what strategies will others be adopting? </li></ul><ul><li>How will others be measuring their 360 credits? </li></ul><ul><li>Recruitment – what barriers or challenges are others facing? Is there an opportunity for the institutions to work together on similar recruitment issues? </li></ul><ul><li>Hardest: Academic buy-in </li></ul><ul><li>Looking forward to: Making a success of the project </li></ul>
  5. 5. Unicycle <ul><li>Project Aim: To build a ‘unicycle’: a prototype mechanism for the export and import of open educational resources at Leeds Metropolitan University. The Unicycle Project will increase the release of open educational resources (OER) from Leeds Met into the further and higher education communities. </li></ul><ul><li>http://unicycle-leedsmet.ning.com </li></ul><ul><li>Simon Thomson </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>
  6. 6. Unicycle <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>Making resources accessible </li></ul><ul><li>How to make it as easy as possible for staff to submit content (getting staff buy-in!) </li></ul><ul><li>Developing a reward & recognition programme </li></ul><ul><li>Technical interoperation of institutional repository & OpenJorum for simultaneous deposit </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Open Exeter embraces the ambition of creating a virtuous circle whereby staff and students, through sharing and reusing, will leverage a more communicative, active and independent learning style appropriate to our mission of developing a teaching research nexus. OER will thereby become an integral component of curriculum design and delivery. </li></ul><ul><li>Open Exeter will provide a testbed for the challenges involved and enable others to draw on the project’s experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>http://projects.exeter.ac.uk/oer </li></ul><ul><li>Tom Browne </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>Open Exeter
  8. 8. Open Exeter <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>How the metadata schema they are developing will map with the metadata being used by others? Would be interested in sharing these at an early stage. </li></ul><ul><li>Dealing with misunderstandings about IPR </li></ul><ul><li>Hardest: Academic buy-in </li></ul><ul><li>Looking forward to: Joining up with a wide range of services including corporate & legal, and causing conversations that wouldn’t normally happen across the institution. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>OpenStaffs will expose its content via Harvest Road Hive and deposit it in Open JORUM. It aims to: </li></ul><ul><li>establish policies and processes to identify, deposit and store content. </li></ul><ul><li>address cultural and practical issues around the sharing of resources, including quality, Intellectual Property Right and Copyright. </li></ul><ul><li>investigate metadata requirements and develop search interfaces to facilitate the retrieval of open educational resources. </li></ul><ul><li>http://learning.staffs.ac.uk/elgg/pg/groups/2581/openstaffs/ </li></ul><ul><li>Sarah Hall </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>OpenStaffs
  10. 10. OpenStaffs <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>How others will be dealing with the cultural issues that OER brings </li></ul><ul><li>Possible business models & rationale for being open </li></ul><ul><li>Workflows/management issues about running an open repository </li></ul><ul><li>Looking forward to: Seeing how successful the project will be </li></ul><ul><li>.. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The primary aim of OTTER is to pilot, analyse and model effective processes for the successful release of highly usable, adaptable, technology-enabled OERs at UoL. OTTER will provide evidence for the sustainable release of future OERs at UoL and across the sector through the adaptation, integration and transfer of lessons learned from other relevant projects (e.g. CASPER, MERLOT, RepRODUCE, Web2Rights) and well-documented and researched experiences in OERs (including MIT’s Open Courseware, Rice University’s Connexions and the OU’s OpenLearn project). </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.le.ac.uk/otter </li></ul><ul><li>Gabi Witthaus </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>OTTER
  12. 12. OTTER <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>Quality criteria – what are others are doing around this? Are other projects looking to control the quality of deposited resources? </li></ul><ul><li>Whether it should be imperative to support the informal use of materials. </li></ul><ul><li>How to monitor the use of the materials once they are made available. </li></ul><ul><li>Hardest: IPR </li></ul><ul><li>Looking forward to: Seeing it all in action </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Open Spires will concentrate broadly in two areas: </li></ul><ul><li>Working with individual and groups of academic staff to ensure that future and legacy freely available digital content can be released using an open content licence, and published as podcast feeds institutionally, in iTunes U, in OpenJorum and subject web portals. </li></ul><ul><li>Consolidating legal/licensing issues and the development of appropriate development support materials for staff and documented workflows for cultural change to ensure that considerations of open release become part of the digital content creation cycle at Oxford University and hence sustainable long term. </li></ul><ul><li>Peter Robinson </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>Open Spires
  14. 14. Open Spires <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>Issues around associating content with dates of expiry/sell by dates. </li></ul><ul><li>How to discover how re-usable and useful the material released is to end-users. </li></ul><ul><li>Hardest: To come up with a licence that will work well for everyone, regardless of their situation </li></ul><ul><li>Looking forward to: Helping staff make informed decisions. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>OCEP will deliver content in the general area of employability which affects every area of the university’s activity and curriculum. Content will be drawn from across all areas of the university, particularly the Add+Vantage scheme which is part of all the university’s undergraduate programmes and focuses on employability, preparation for employment, entrepreneurship, creativity, preparing for professional practice and a wide range of other topics, both generically and within the context of particular disciplines and subject areas. </li></ul><ul><li>David Morris </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>Open Content Employability Project
  16. 16. <ul><li>Would like to connect with other projects on: </li></ul><ul><li>Finding out how users actually use the content made available </li></ul><ul><li>Should we be attaching pedagogic wrappers to the content to help users understand how it can be used </li></ul><ul><li>Hardest: Getting willing depositors </li></ul><ul><li>Looking forward to: Working across the university – and learning from/working with other OER projects </li></ul>Open Content Employability Project
  17. 17. Institutional Strand: Contact <ul><li>My details: </li></ul><ul><li>Heather Williamson </li></ul><ul><li>Programme Manager, JISC </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] , </li></ul><ul><li>tel: 07810 814468 </li></ul>
