This Cloudscape builds on a number of other OPAL project Clouds and Cloudscapes which have discussed the themes of :

At the EFQUEL Innovation Forum (September 8th-10th 2010) in Oieras, Portugal - the OPAL project team continued its work with regards to developing the OEP dimensions identified in previous project activities, and started working towards the creation of developing OEP guidelines for stakeholders.

At the conference Grainne Conole interviewed eight colleagues from the academic community to collect their thoughts and input on video around the following four questions.

  1. What opportunities do OER offer for education from your perspective?
  2. What do you think are the key challenges to achieving this vision?
  3. We have identified four dimensions of OEP practice that are important – do these capture the different aspects of OER practice? Strategies and Policies, Barriers and Success Factors, Tools and Tool Practice, Staff Development and Support. Is there anything else we should include?
  4. What kinds of guidelines derived from these dimensions of OEP would be useful for those involved in creating, using and management OER?

These videos are available for viewing in this Cloudscape. Each Cloud in the Cloudcape has an embedded link to a video interview. The interviews range in length up to about twelve minutes.

We invite you to view the videos and to comment on what you have heard, and offer your thoughts about the questions.

These videos and any feedback will feed into a Virtual Meeting workshop to be hosted by Grainne Conole on the 14th October 2010 between 14:00-16:00 BST ,at which we will seek to gather further expert input based on these questions.

The Virtual Meeting will then feed into a planned face to face project workshop which will be held in Paris on the 8th-9th November.
