The CETIS UKOLN Hack days was a two day event hacking content, systems and services for open educational resources on the 31 Mar & 1 Apr 2011 in Manchester. This event was organised under the DevCSI and OER Technical Interest Group initiatives. The aim was to bring together software developers, project managers, academics, learning technologists, researchers and users who were interested in hacking OER content, systems and services.

During the event, delegates working in multi-disciplinary teams to work on ideas that had been suggested before and at the beginning of the hack days. The links below show those ideas that were worked on and developed during the day and, just for the record, some of the ideas which weren't picked up by a team.

Some initial reflections on the event by John Robertson are available on his blog, and a more in-depth review of the hack days by Kirsty Pitkin appeared in Ariadne.
