Hi Eleni – as always happy to talk further about the UKOER programme.

 

Worth reminding all that it was a joint JISC/Higher Education Academy delivery of a HEFCE programme, and was configured as three one year investments, rather than one three-year programme.

 

Would also be worth mentioning the HEFCE funding provided to the SCORE project at the Open University. Though not as visible as UKOER, it did a lot of useful work and was in receipt of (I think) £3m from HEFCE over 3 years.

And there was a programme led by colleagues in the Jisc Digitisation team which created OER around openly licensed artefacts.

(I’ve linked to the evaluation reports in each case, as these may be of more use to you)

 

Internationally – a conversation with Kate Nicholson at the Hewlett Foundation would be of great help you you about the early years of (largely foundation-led) OCW/OER funding. http://www.hewlett.org/about-the-william-and-flora-hewlett-foundation/foundation-staff/kathy-nicholson .She is  very kind and lovely – do say hello from me!

Hello everyone,

 

Thank you Jacqueline and Geoff for the pointers. Indeed David Kernohan has given me the figure of the Jisc/HEFQE expediture on OER. 

 

Geoff, the links you pointed have a massive amount of info on regional initiatives. Thank you for this! I tried to locate figures and it seems a bit challenging, perhaps the effort to gather in one place governmental spending on OER would be a project on its own right. 

 

If you spot any other sources please let me know.

 

All the best

Eleni

Hi Eleni,

 

You might find some useful information here at the POERUP project web site (http://www.poerup.info/ ):

 

 

and country specific information here:

 

 

I have not reviewed it all myself so I can’t say whether it has all the information you require.

 

Hope this helps.

Subject: OER grants' figures

 

Dear colleagues,

 

I am currently writing a book addressing the emerging role of the Information Professional. One of the chapters addresses the various facets of openness, including OER.  My argument is around the governmental expenditure in OER projects and its significance in governmental agendas. I wish I had more data for other countries, but so far the European Open Data is fragmented. I have an approximate figure for the UK and aware of the the US for the $2 billion governmental funds granted for OER. ( http://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/26100)  

 

I would appreciate it greatly if you could direct me to any sources with data for other continents you may be aware of and any US grants before 2011.

 

More details about my forthcoming book can be found at http://www.woodheadpublishing.com/en/book.aspx?bookID=3342&ChandosTitle=1

 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Eleni
