    • Drawing from OpenLearn as an outlet for managing and using educational resources, supporting teaching, learning and research activities
    • Aiming at educators to support sector-wide OER activity
    • Three main roles: OER sharing (resources and expertise), community support and fellowships
    • Special tie to UK OER alliance (HEFCE/JISC/HEA) but retaining international connections with OCWConsortium and EADTU.
  • 3. Thanks can we have more?
    • A big thank you to the faculties and faculty reps who have helped OL
    • Content is still needed as OpenLearn continues to grow as part of SCORE and
    • As OL increasingly becomes part of what the OU does.

    • Drawing on CETL experience
    • 36 fellows over 3 years, or 6 full-time equivalents so significant group
    • Full and associate fellowships ranging from 3-6 months full time, to more part-time flavours

    • New SCORE website (from Feb 2010) to support and develop a vibrant web 2.0-based community around UK OER projects.
    • Strong links from this into OpenLearn.
    • Developing more OU OER partnerships (e.g. working with HE Academic Practice courses to introduce OER to teachers new to teaching in HE)
    • The OU continues to lead OER and increasingly shares what it knows across the sector to influence policy and practice.
