JorumOpen? Now it’s Jorum only

ManYang9 February 2011

Just about to deposit our first release of the resources into JorumOpen. But realised from this week’s  Elluminate session that JorumOpen is no longer exist. Instead all Jorum resources are now in one single database.

It might mean simple platform for Jorum. But be aware that when you search for resources , you will be presented with one single list of resources,  shared under different licence options – Creative Commons and Jorum EducationUK. The latter, which was also introduced recently by Jorum,  allows users to access and use a resource in UK Education for any non-commercial purposes that are conducive to education, teaching, learning, private study and/or research.

It is also interesting to know that new Jorum widgets and API have been developed and will be available for us to use soon. I certainly want to try the widgets on the OER@UCL website, or the  project website?
