Leeds Metropolitan University has recently developed an institutional repository funded by the HEFCE/JISC/HEA programme. This is currently being used to share content on a small scale. Also at this time Leeds Met would like to explore the sharing of materials across institutions in order to be more effective and efficient in the creation of learning materials. Currently staff share materials at a very local (subject/award) level.
The OER project provides an opportunity for Leeds Met to identify materials of value to other institutions and partners and release some of our well-established materials currently located on our skills for learning site: http://skillsforlearning.leedsmet.ac.ukunder an open license. Further to this our expanding Regional University Network (RUN) would benefit from access to our materials as they deliver HE courses in an FE setting.
