  1. 1. OER use: who, what, where, how andmost of all WHY?<br />Chris Pegler<br />IET,<br />Open University<br />By: Mickipediahttp://www.flickr.com/photos/redcarpet/266592978/<br />
  2. 2. Where am I coming from? <br /> Promise<br /> Practice<br />What we think/say<br />OER<br />will offer<br />Where we find out what OER<br />offers<br />By: Perpetualplum http://www.flickr.com/photos/perpetualplum/3729882822/<br /> ORIOLE PROJECT <br />
  3. 3. How can you discover and select material?<br />Describe fully + consistently with metadata<br />Automated impersonal reuse with RLO!<br />The long OER journey: As I see it<br />Let’s automate as much as possible<br />Problems obtaining metadata<br />Found something. Can I use it? Can I repurpose it?<br />Open content/OER: ‘a learning object plus an open licence’ (Wiley, 2009)<br />We need something like an ‘open license’<br />

  6. 6. Whoare the users?<br />Are we talking suppliers or demanders?<br />Are the users the educators(who release/reuse OER) or the learners(who release/use OER)?<br />Are the ‘users’ outside the education system altogether (outsiders/informal learners)?<br /> Leading to questions about …<br />
  7. 7. What?By: sflawhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/sfllaw/222795669/<br />
  8. 8. What is OER use?<br />Using it in learning and teaching by linking to it? <br />Using it as optional orcoreeducational content? <br />Using it as publicity(the showcase or student sampler model)<br />Little OER or big OER use – which is more used/useful/sustainable? (Weller, OpenEd 2010)<br /> Leading to questions about …<br />

  14. 14. When is OER use happening?<br />When its mandatedor when its voluntary? <br />When the educators are new to the job? <br />When content is ‘ready to show’ or when its work-in-progress (ready-to-share)? <br />Is it everyday or special occasion only? <br />Is lack of time an influence, or an excuse, or both?<br />FINALLY, leading to questions about …<br />
  15. 15. Why?By: Idelros60http://www.flickr.com/photos/ldelros60/4401066888<br />
  16. 16. Whyuse OER? <br />My research into reuse suggests 3 sets of factors technical, quality and motivational (Pegler, OER10 2010). This suggests at least 8 different motives for OER use:<br />Reward/Requirement:Payment made or targets met. <br />Reputation: Recognition or showcasing beyond the usual audience.<br />Review:Obtaining comments, reviews and feedback<br />Reach: Access to resources which would not otherwise be available<br />Research: Curiosity about OER as new, novel and untested area<br />Right thing to do: driven by personal/institutional altruism/mission<br />Renewal: As part of academic practice/educational development<br />Resourcing: Urgency/other constraints preventing new creation<br />
