Hi Terese,

The Virtual University of Small States of the Commonwealth (VUSSC) ( is a collection of universities in small Commonwealth states who are working together to produce OER and develop a transnational qualifications framework - definitely OEP.  I'm working with VUSCC on some OER impact  research for the OER Research Hub so do get in touch if you want any more information.

All best,


Dr Leigh-Anne Perryman

As part of the eMundus project

I am trying to document examples of open educational institutional partnerships. What do I mean by this? The best example that comes to mind is the OER University, where these universities are working together in such a way that students can earn a degree for much less expense, studying online and using OER as learning materials, and the degree is a ‘real degree’ from the participating university.


In my embryonic report, I have already included the Scottish and Welsh Declarations, and list of MOOC providers in Europe. But I’m looking now for examples of universities and other institutions working together, OEP-style. Thank you for any thoughts or examples that you know of!


Kind regards,
