Open University OER Transformation Models Lane, A., (2006). From Pillar to Post: exploring the issues involved in repurposing distance learning materials for use as Open Educational Resources. Found at: http://kn.open.ac.uk/public/d ocument.cfm?docid=9724 http://kn.open.ac.uk/public/d ocument.cfm?docid=9724 Integrity model: OER is very similar to the original material Essence model: Material is transformed by cutting back to essential features and new activities added for interactivity. Remix model: Material is used as a starting point but the unit is redesigned for ideal web based delivery.
Open, Transferable and Technology-enabled Educational Resources: the OTTER project Funded by JISC and the HE Academy May 2009 to April 2010 as pilot institutional OER project Enabled evaluation of systems and processes to support the release of high-quality OERs at Leicester Made use of JorumOpen and the Plone CMS.
OTTER achievements 360+ credits’ worth of OERs Promoted Leicester and the UK HE sector globally Research evidence on satisfaction and attitudes to OERs Put-up take-down guidelines for OERs Leicester OER toolkit The CORRE framework for turning teaching materials into OERs Much increased awareness of OERs at Leicester and elsewhere

Derby - background University owns the materials. Centralised team – CORRE very suitable. A range of subject areas from quarrying to education... Mainly transformed existing materials.
Derby case study – CORRE for Law Key (Derby) Academic OER project manager Copyright administrator/ librarian Learning Technologist Developer
Bath - background Learning & Teaching Enhancement Office, Engineering, Division for Lifelong Learning, Education (100 credits total) No central OER team at University of Bath Development of a framework for creating OER ‘from scratch’
Bath – IP Policy IPR at Bath is complex: - University owns IP of all work undertaken by staff; - Academics own materials produced for campus- based teaching. BUT … - … the University owns materials produced for distance education.
This leads to DORRE…
