The idea is that by building up an extensive user base, providing good quality and well organised content, the popularity of the site will lead to increases in the number of students applying for multimedia courses at the University, hence producing a model for sustainability. The project will build on TTV and look to extend it by making the content available on Jorum, iTunes and youTube but also by making the videos easier to download directly from the site. A greater emphasis will be put on developing content with a corporate identity for MMTV so that the learning content is directly associated with the University
963 http://prod.cetis.ac.uk/projects/903 OpenSpace Open Space : UKOER Individual Strand project e-Learning programme Open education resources programme OpenSpace is an extension of the experience University College Falmouth (UCF) has gained through the successful launch of its first distance learning course, MA Professional Writing (part-time), and through running student-centred online platforms such as the HelpMe Forum and the online International Student HandbookThe pilot, which will be launched in March 2010, will repurpose and release educational resources used in MA Professional Writing's Distance Learning course (total of 40 credits) under Creative Commons.
964 http://prod.cetis.ac.uk/projects/904 numbat NumBat e-Learning programme Open education resources programme The proposed project will build on previous work to provide online learning materials to support numeracy across a wide range of subject areas in FE and HE. It is proposed to repurpose online numeracy resources built under the NuMBerS project (http://web.anglia.ac.uk/numbers) and use these as the basis of an innovative pilot site where users can access materials, rate their use and effectiveness, and have the option to upload materials and case studies. The project will test an online repository that is user-driven, allowing users to access different combinations of resources to build their own learning activities, to rate materials, and to contribute their own materials. The basis of this pilot will repurpose learning materials developed for the NuMBerS project, which comprises a series of online materials to support the use of numerical techniques. NuMBerS was developed initially for biosciences students, but has subsequently been shown to be applicable across a range of subject areas.
965 http://prod.cetis.ac.uk/projects/905 chemistryfm ChemistryFM e-Learning programme Open education resources programme This project will release all educational resources used in Year 1 ‘Introductory Chemistry for Forensic Science’ students (total of 30 credits).

966 http://prod.cetis.ac.uk/projects/906 evolution EVOLUTION : Educational and Vocational Objects for Learning Using Technology In Open Networks e-Learning programme Open education resources programme The EVOLUTION project will facilitate access to a range of materials by the wider HE and FE communities. The project will review and update existing materials, check copyright, IPR and licensing, add appropriate metadata and repackage in a format suitable for uploading to JORUM OPEN. The materials designed to be re-used and re-purposed and this project will make not only the packaged content available but also the component parts of the materials Therefore the project will upload component parts, including raw data files, to allow repackaging of materials for re-use and re-purposing. The project will create a guide to re-use of materials and will run a series of repackaging workshop for the HE sector. At institution level the project will embed the principles and processes required to facilitate release of Open Educational Resources. It will also update the basic repository currently used to access the materials.

1038 http://prod.cetis.ac.uk/projects/983 tiger Transforming Interprofessional Groups through Educational Resources (TIGER) : The TIGER project is a ukoer phase 2 project at the Universities of Northampton, Leicester and De Montfort e-Learning programme Open educational resources programme phase 2 The TIGER project will innovate by collecting, developing and sharing reusable, customisable Open Educational Resources (OERs) designed for Interprofessional Education (IPE) in Health and Social Care between the three institutions, academics, their existing communities of practice, employers and the wider community in line with expressed sector requirements.
1039 http://prod.cetis.ac.uk/projects/984 porsche Pathways for Open Resource Sharing through Convergence in Healthcare Education (PORSCHE) : MEDEV Subject Centre UKOER phase 2 Release Strand project e-Learning programme Open educational resources programme phase 2 This OER ‘release meeting sector needs’ proposal is a medium to high risk proposal on behalf of the Organising Open Educational Resources (OOER) partners including HEIs from across the UK and the NHS eLearning Repository (NeLR), with stakeholder support. NHS services are becoming more commercially oriented, and access to NHS services for undergraduate student learning, especially those located in practice education is limited. If the current trends are continue then all educational content created by clinical teachers will be locked down to NHS service providers. Examples of excellent collaboration between NHS and academia exist (e.g. the N3-Janet Gateway) where a pilot service to foster sharing has recently been mainstreamed and the support for them taken on by the NHS. In addition, services arising from the academic community, such as JorumOpen, are not typically highlighted to colleagues delivering practice education. There are considerable synergies and efficiencies to be gained from this work.
