C-change visits SCORE
Yesterday Mike Sanders and Ed Bremner went up to the Open University in Milton Keynes to meet with Rose Webb and Andy Lane from the OU about the Support Centre for Open Resources in Education (SCORE) and Dr Martin Reynolds from the OU – one of the C-change partners.
SCORE is built on the OpenLearn project which has already reached its target of providing 5,400 learning hours of content in the LearningSpace and 8100 hours in the LabSpace, covering a full range of Open University subject areas from introductory to postgraduate level. SCORE now aims to extend the use of Open Educational Resources (OER) to help support similar activities in the rest of the Higher Educational sector.
It was a very interesting trip, although in some ways a little daunting to see how large and well organised the OpenLearn project is.
The good news is of course that SCORE intends to share its knowledge about OER and help the rest of us get the very best from our projects.
SCORE is intending on launching a new website shortly, but for the moment you can find out more about the project by visiting their pages on OpenLearn LapSpace at: http://labspace.open.ac.uk/course/view.php?id=5129
If you have any questions, you can always register (for free) and post them to the forum or you can download details of their last OER Workshop on Copyright Commons.
