The internet is increasingly populated with educational websites offering materials for use and reuse. This unit looks at three major initiatives – MIT’s open courseware, Carnegie Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative, and the Open University’s OpenLearn website. You will gain an insight into how different OER initiatives design and present content for their audiences. You will also be given the opportunity to download and repurpose content from the OpenLearn’s LabSpace area.
Once you have completed H800_1 you will have a better knowledge and understanding of:
- the ‘choices that practitioners make about ways of applying technologies for a variety of learners across the globe in education, training and professional development’ — the OER websites you visited present different learning designs and tools;
- ‘a range of conventional and innovative technologies, drawing on your own experience and the experience of other students and professionals in technology-enhanced learning’ — you will be able to repurpose materials on OpenLearn by using the in situ editing tool and OpenLearn technologies such as FM and Compendium.
