Jorum is to offer open educational resources, in an announcement by JISC today. The move to open access – named JorumOpen – “will make it easier for lecturers and teaching staff to share and re-use each other’s teaching resources.”
The global aspect of sharing is interesting, and the Creative Commons aspect is a welcome addition, particularly if it follows something along the lines of Flickr’s approach, which offers a very visual overview. The announcement makes no mention of statistics, something I think would be useful in terms of seeing some geographical representation of sharing, e.g., seeing where the most highly rated content originated from or which areas were the biggest contributors.
Alongside JorumOpen will be JorumEducationUK, which is a ‘members only’ area for within the UK education sector.
