ADM-HEA ANNOUNCEMENTS


Art Design Media - Open Educational Resources (ADM-OER) Project - Additional Reports Online

This ADM-OER pilot project constitutes the art, design and media subject strand of the more extensive Open Educational Resources Project being undertaken by JISC and the Higher Education Academy. It is accepted that Virtual Learning Environments have grown rapidly in the Web 2.0 world. Digital repositories have become essential to the delivery of accessible and sustainable teaching and learning materials.

The ADM-OER Project was undertaken in association with two art, design and media institutions: University of the Arts London; and the University for the Creative Arts and one university faculty: the Faculty for the Arts, Cumbria University.

The Final Project Report is currently being completed. As part of this process a series of additional reports have been created by the ADM Subject Centre and project partners. These aim to report of the project’s wider findings and provide guidance to those in the subject community who may wish to have a greater understanding of OERs.

The reports include, copyright, intellectual property reports and guidance, a report on practices and policies in the partner institutions, a focus group/survey report on art, design and media perceptions of OERs and a series of valuable policy documents.

All available as PDFs they can be downloaded from the project webpage:
