8 May 2010
The ICS Open Educational Resources (OER) project is part of a wider initiative funded by the JISC (Joint Information Systems Committee) and the HEA, to showcase UK Higher Education by encouraging teachers within HE institutions to publish excellent teaching and learning resources openly on the web.
This project aims to make available core educational materials which can be deployed across the spectrum of computer-related programmes including new and emerging disciplines.
This project will provide open access to materials with direct relevance to the teaching and assessment of:
- Systems Analysis and Design.
- Computer Programming.
- Data and Computer Networks.
- The development of problem solving skills.
The materials to be made available have been harvested across those Schools of Computing/Computer Science and Electronic and Computer Engineering who have demonstrated a significant strategic investment in the development and deployment of original materials, as evidenced by the associated academic credit and the integration of such materials across multiple programmes of study in-house.
