CPD4HE Workshop – Register Now!

ManYang1 July 2011

The free workshop explores the potential of open educational resources (OERs) in developing and accrediting university teaching. David Kernohan, JISC’s E-learning Manager is the guest speaker. Participants will work with learning materials developed in UCL’s CPD4HE project (Funded by the HEA and JISC) and create their own OERs.

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?

Busy at the moment!

ManYang26 January 2011

It’s been quiet for a while over the Christmas but we are very busy at the moment preparing for the release of the materials from the two units. June, our IPR and licensing adviser, had a meeting with Holly and Ros in December to give advice on IPR and licensing issues. There were lots of discussions and debates on which creative commons license our project should use.

Ros and I also tried recording voice over slides for the PowerPoint presentation on Assessment and Feedback. We have figured out the optimum settings to achieve good sound quality. Lots of materials have been uploaded to the team area of the project web site and we are in the process of releasing some of these very soon. So watch this space!
