The OER Pilot programme was the first of a series of one year long Open Educational Resources programmes funded through JISC and the Higher Education Academy. The aim of the programmes is to enable higher education institutions, consortia and individuals to share learning materials freely online. The programmes support universities and colleges in exploring processes and policies, intellectual property rights, cultural issues, technical requirements and data management issues.
The pilot programme ran from April 2009 to April 2010. CETIS support was based on the principle of working from particular technical issues raised by projects or emerging from the wider community and to produce more general technical guidance and reflections. This approach seeks to not only inform and support projects but also build a coherent technical overview of the OER programmes, identify lessons learned and emerging trends, and engage with and participate in the wider international OER communities.
Outputs of the technical support project include:
