17 Rules of the OERu game... Dawn Huczek: Credential OER learners (cost recovery) Course credit transfer among OERu partners (for agreed credential) Assemble minimum of 2 OER-based courses (for agreed credential) Gold or silver member of the OER Foundation OERTen partners agree...

18 Mechanics of OERu operations... Dawn Huczek: Recognition of prior learning (RPL) protocols provide precedent for recognising OER learning, however: - Existing RPL systems are expensive - Don't scale well. OERu does not confer degrees (anchor partners do) OERu anchor partners retain decision-making autonomy, eg: - Price for assessment and credential services - Local matriculation requirements - Courses and credentials provided under OERu network
