 Contents include:

content production, OER learning design, use and re-use, sustainability, collaborations etc.


 How to measure usage of OERs? How do institutions use OER? What happens when someone downloads the content, do they anything with it? (evaluation questions)

Collaborations: power relations, how to set it up and deal with with task division? What are the driving forces for collaborating? 

Time resources and financial resources sometimes can be constraints to collaborating, and collaborators usually have to work around those issues.

Collaborations should ideally be demand driven.

 

 


A great idea is that there should be a mechanism to facilitate collaboration between institutions, finding what is available. Connectivity is the answer. 

Pull of resources, something that could put together all the content that is available (e.g. search engine). This would allow people to identify who offers what they need and foster collaborations.

 Ideas for collaboration:

 *Simple way to communicate between networks

 *A way in which people can find each other

 *OLnet as a 'dating service' for people with similar interests to find each other
