I’m beginning to feel a little like Dave Gorman and his Googlewhack adventure, as each of the “Have a Go” sideshows links seamlessly to the next.
So yesterday I looked at the JISC Design Studio, where I found a listing for the JISC OER Infokit.
Doug Belshaw kindly recorded an Audioboo sound bite which neatly introduces the Infokit submission to the Conference “Have a Go” area.
The Open Educational Resources (OER) infoKit is based on PBwiki like the Design Studio. It explains what Open Educational resources are, and has links to advice and guidance on many aspects of OER’s including Intellectual property, which is particularly important in light of the Digital Economy act.
OER’s may also become more important in light of the recent Government CSR, as they provide a route to share resources and build communities of practice.
The Conference runs from the 23rd – 26th November 2010, BUT the pre-conference activity and reading week opens on 16th November 2010 and offers a chance to become familiar with the conference environment and try out innovative JISC projects in the ‘have-a-go’ area.
See you there!
Book online – early registration advisable for full participation in the pre-conference week
