UKOER Pilot phase institutional strand synthesis

Institutional strand synthesis – pliot phase

Lou McGill

Seven institutions were funded to openly (free for use and repurposing) release their existing learning resources. Resources included – but was not limited to – course materials, reading lists, student generated content, images and other multimedia, learning objects, electronic learning activities, and recordings and supporting materials from lectures, workshops, and presentations. Projects were expected to release at least the equivalent of one undergraduate course (360 credits).

Visual mapping

As there are only seven projects in this strand it is ‘just’ possible to attempt to represent the strand synthesis visually… right click on the image to view and then zoom in to see the detail. This large map has been broken down in the appropriate sections of the institutional synthesis pages…


OER Synthesis and Evaluation framework

A separate version of the generic framework was developed to share with the Institutional Strand Projects. This went through several iterations throughout the year and projects were asked to engage with it at approrpiate intervals.

The versions are available here:

Some projects utilised the framework to support their evaluation activities and some included a project specific version in their final reporting.

These pages are taken from the final version of the strand synthesis framework. Each page includes a mixture of summary paragraphs and actual excerpts from project documentation.
