Using OpenStudio

OpenStudio is an Open University gallery tool designed to allow you to share visual ideas with your peers.

To share an item, go to ‘My Pinboard’. You should see ‘Add pinboard item’. Click on ‘New slot’. Drop the item you want to upload into the designated area or enter the web link below that area. Give your item a title by typing in the box at the top.

If you wish to share this item with other members of the course, you need change the ‘Who can view this slot’ to ‘My module’. If you wish to keep it private, set it to ‘Only me’.

To see your peers’ work, go to ‘My module’ and then click on one of the items. This then opens a new view which enables you to comment on your peer’s item.

Acceptable conduct

Please ensure that you treat all other users with respect in any comments you make, and think carefully about how others might react to what you have written. You must also ensure you do not post images of children – such as students from your classrooms – in this forum.
