  7. 7. OER – or to believe impossible things?   “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”  Source: OER Logo 2012 CC-BY J.

  18. 18. COER13 as change agent? Critical Assessment I A Challenges and Effects within one Institution (Munich University of Applied Sciences MUAS)  Issues of mandate:  Is a MOOC on OER mandated by a project to improve the overall teaching quality of MUAS with digital media?  Is a joint venture of many different players, inside and outside of HE, mandated?  Is an open target group mandated?  Issues of public relations:   What is the official status of such an informal co-operation by experts in the field without contractual basis? Issues of accreditation:  How to give students credit in ECTS * for successful participation?  *ECTS = European Credit Transfer System ONLINE EDUCA 2013 Patricia Arnold, arnold@hm.edu Slide 18
  19. 19. COER13 as change agent? Critical Assessment II A Challenges and Effects within one institution (MUAS; cont.)  Raised awareness:  COER13 obtained much attention within the university (management, PR division, faculty boards etc. –due to MOOC “me too-effect”?)  Increased student choices:   COER13 was accredited for within a scheme of study offerings across programs – ECTS for an informal learning opportunity -> increased student choices! Enhanced information material on OER:  COER13 website is used as a comprehensive learning/promotion site on OER within the university (in German) ONLINE EDUCA 2013 Patricia Arnold, arnold@hm.edu Slide 19
  20. 20. COER13 as change agent? Critical Assessment II B Promoting the OER cause  Comprehensive learning resource on OER:  COER13 website is still used and referred to frequently after the end of the course – acts as OER on OER (in German)  many other OERs came into existence:  Participants created many other OERs in their fields, often tagged with “edutags”, and linked to the COER13 website  OER wiki with suggestions and recommendations on strategies & policies  A variety of summarizing posters and graphics, openly licensed  2 smart phone apps for choosing the most adequate open license ONLINE EDUCA 2013 Patricia Arnold, arnold@hm.edu Slide 20
  21. 21. Conclusions  COER13 advanced the OER cause in Germany  To measure impact further research needed  Cheating Sheet on OER “The key question here is whether our higher education institutions and individual instructors can afford to adopt a ‘wait-and-see’ attitude in the light of these [OER and OEP] movements. Asking that question in fact amounts to answering it! Didderen & Verjans (2012, 15) ONLINE EDUCA 2013 Patricia Arnold, arnold@hm.edu Slide 21
