The Open Northampton project aims to put Northampton on the global open educational resources (OER) map within 24 months. It will achieve that aim by promoting open practices and enabling colleagues to share exemplars of their academic materials under an open licence via the JORUM repository.
Colleagues can contribute materials in different formats. For example:
- Content (such as handouts) for a teaching session (in MS Word or PDF);
- Lecture presentations (in PowerPoint or PDF);
- Video clips;
- Audio clips;
- Assessment activities;
- Learning activities;
- Case studies or scenarios;
- Reading lists;
- Other artefacts (diagrams, maps, etc).
The Open Northampton team will review the material using the CORRE quality process and add appropriate metadata to it, before releasing the content into JORUM.
Northampton colleagues interested in taking part in Open Northampton should contact Dr Ming Nie, the Project Coordinator.
