 just registered to use CloudWorks and am finding my way around.  This cloudscape looks like the one for me!

I am project manager of a one year JISC-funded OER project, which started last May.  One of our workpackages, developed in partnership with Grainne Conole, is to see how CloudWorks can be used not just to track usage but to create a community around nature of use, reuse etc. of the resources we make available.   Our utopian ideal, built into our new Educational Strategy, which we are currently drafting, is that staff and students will be in an active partnership, within some teaching-research nexus, around these resources.

 A utopian step too far?

Always good to have Utopian ideals! Working openly could well help develop such an active partnership as it gives permission to all to contribute (including students). OER also act as good objects for starting to breakdown other barriers between teaching/research/learning. Good luck with your project.
