  26. 26. TU Delft OCW in the media June 8, 2009
  27. 27. Where do we go from here ? <ul><li>General: </li></ul><ul><li>TU Delft policy: not only open access of educational materials: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All dissertations (full text); </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Multi-media. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Open Access publishing in journals </li></ul></ul><ul><li>More materials are available in digital and new formats (games, VodCast). Tremendous growth in the use of streaming video. How do we make optimal uses of these developments? </li></ul>
  28. 28. Where do we go from here ? <ul><li>Challenges </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainability: how to create (financial) incentives for staff to publish educational materials? </li></ul><ul><li>Different motives: how to create a business model when departments have different motives to participate? Examples of motives : </li></ul><ul><li>Drinking water: more international students, OCW will be integrated in the blended learning modules </li></ul><ul><li>Nanoscience: reputation, more master students </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial Design: Open source design </li></ul><ul><li>Micro Electronics: collaboration with industries (sponsorships) </li></ul>
  29. 29. Outline for the second phase until 2010 <ul><li>Website: From repository to community </li></ul><ul><li>Sustainable business model for the publication of courses </li></ul><ul><li>Include material for other target group </li></ul><ul><li>Editorial board </li></ul><ul><li>Growth number of publications </li></ul><ul><li>PhD-research on OER? </li></ul><ul><li>External Sponsorship? </li></ul>
  30. 30. From repository to community: <ul><li>Add website functionalities : who else used these resources, others who used these resources also used the following documents, number of views, rating, discussion area..; </li></ul><ul><li>Link to other university resources : DIScover (TU Library project to link all kinds of resources integrated in the OCW-website) </li></ul><ul><li>User centered approach for the functional design of the website. Materials of the Open-Source Design project will serve as starting point; </li></ul><ul><li>Depository : other people can add content; </li></ul><ul><li>Additional services like customized support/courses, student projects; </li></ul><ul><li>Communities for people who have shared interest. </li></ul>
