8 Taking our materials through CORRE Stage in CORRE Sample challenges ContentAre the materials usable out of context (e.g. without seminar input)? OpennessHave I copyright cleared all 3 rd party content (e.g. images) embedded in my materials? Reuse & Repurpose Are all authors happy with the CC licence assigned to the new version of the materials? EvidenceWho is your OER primarily aimed at? Future Leicester students? Academics in other universities? Others?

9 Research findings (1): staff Supportive but sceptical about value and impact Willing to make use of and contribute, but not full force Reward and recognition, especially non-financial Lack of awareness of CC Team effort

10 Research findings (2): students Supportive and enthusiastic Highly satisfied with OTTER OERs Concerned about trustworthiness of external OERs Preferred access via VLE as hub 1/3 unwilling to turn their own stuff (e.g. lecture notes) into OERs

11 Research findings (3): librarians Concerns: 3rd party copyright, currency, quality, funding, management support, institutional policies and metadata requirements See themselves as managers of OER repositories, developers of generic OERs, indexers, cataloguers and promoters

12 Key messages Institutional policy on who owns what CORRE as a robust framework Clearance of 3 rd party materials Designing for openness & culture shift Supply vs demand-driven approaches Sustainability Visibility

13 OTTER lives on OSTRICH ( – a cascade project with Bath and TIGER – a ‘new release’ project with De Montfort and Northampton
