  • http://humbox.ac.uk/ HumBox is a repository for storing, managing and publishing Humanities teaching resources, including a mixture of handouts, exercises, podcasts and videos.
  • http://hlsweb.dmu.ac.uk/ahs/elearning/RITA/Resources.html VAL (Virtual Analytical Laboratory) offers a range of OERs on lab skills, including animations and videos. The repository is developed by DMU. The idea for VAL came about when academics realised that many new students were entering on DMU’s Biomedical Science BSc Honours programme or Medical Science BMedSci Honours programme with no laboratory experience, and also, students returning to years 2 and 3 after the holidays were often a bit rusty.
  • http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xpert/ Xpert is an OER aggregator developed by the University of Nottingham, which allows you to search CC licensed resources, especially multimedia resources, including pictures, sounds and videos.

  • http://www.poerup.info/index.html http://poerup.referata.com/wiki/Countries_with_OER_initiatives#United_Kingdom POERUP : is about policies for OER uptake. It is made up of a consortium consisting of a group of organisations across Europe and Canada interested in understanding how better to foster the uptake of OER by governments and groups of educational institutions. Partners are from Canada, France, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. POERUP will produce: - POERUP wiki: A global inventory of at least 100 national and large-scale OER initiatives. - 11 country reports plus 13 more country mini-reports. These are created based on literature review and document analysis of relevant policy papers and country reports from previous projects. - Based on the inventory and the country studies to produce 3 EU-wide policy papers for schools, universities, and colleges and other organised education providers. This results in a set of policies and guidelines.
