Jorum Open – Request for Art, Design and Media Resources

Date posted: 11/10/2010

As part of the UK-OER Programme all teaching and learning materials identified by the ADM-OER Pilot Project 2009-10 and the current Practicing Open Education Project are deposited into the JISC central repository JORUM* OPEN which houses materials in all subject disciplines.
The materials are uploaded and Creative Commons licenses applied. The process is straightforward and all teaching and support staff in UK institutions will be able to log in and complete the stages to upload.

It is important that colleagues understand this facility is not exclusive to the projects in the programme but is available to everyone. Jorum Open currently houses in excess of 10,000 teaching and learning resources openly available to download.
Jorum would encourage everyone who has teaching and learning materials (PDFs, Power Point Presentations, worksheets, podcast links etc) they wish to share to become involved.

* Jorum is a JISC-funded Service in Development in UK Further and Higher Education, to collect and share learning and teaching materials, allowing their reuse and repurposing. This free online repository service forms a key part of the JISC Information Environment, and is intended to become part of the wider landscape of repositories being developed institutionally, locally, regionally or across subject areas.

JorumUK is currently available to UK FE and HE institutions, and is based on an institutionally registered User and Depositor licensing model. JorumOpen is free to access from any worldwide source - only depositors are required to sign up.

Jorum is run jointly by Mimas and EDINA, the two national data centres based at Universities of Manchester and Edinburgh.
