Hi Amber,

Thanks for these interesting thinky thoughts! It's great to see an overview of the progress that's been made over the last year. OER still appears to be a fast moving, growing area but it's not always easy to see the direction of travel, or the wood for the trees as you put it.

The whole issue of scope and scale is very relevant and is related directly to aggregation and reuse. I think we need to know a lot more about how openly licensed educational resources are actually being used now, and how they could potentially be used in the future, so it's great to see so much work going ahead in this area. I've really looking forward to seeing that the JISC eContent folk come up with and the Learning Registry could potentially transform our knowledge of how educational resources are used, if it manages to gather a critical mass of meta and paradata.

In terms of the paths to follow over the next year I agree that linking OERs to courses is key, as is developing the ability to create academic OER profiles and of course the whole area of web analytics will be crucial to facilitating both these developments. Maybe this is will be the year that web analytics and tracking finally start to get some traction!

Thanks again
Lorna

Subject: OER digital infrastructure issues - blogpost

Hi

I have written an update on the digital infrastructure issues around the OER programme
http://infteam.jiscinvolve.org/wp/2011/08/31/oer-di-update/

This only scratches the surface of the sorts of issues projects have been exploring, but I found it useful to revisit my thinking from last year. CETISís synthesis activities will dig into the evidence of what is happening in the programme http://blogs.cetis.ac.uk/johnr/2011/08/26/ukoer2techsynthesis/ , and no doubt produce some interesting commentary too.

Iím aware of a wide spectrum of technology practices around OER, almost like a matrix of individual<->institutional and tightcontrol<->loosecontrol, and I think articulating these would be helpful to understanding the choices required.

Comments on Johnís draft tech synthesis posts and on my update post would be very welcome.
