Samuel Nikoi at Leicester University talked about an evaluation framework
Evaluation framework developed within the University of Leicester OTTER project for conversion of content from existing teaching materials to OER.
- staff attitudes (King et al., 2008)
- degrees of openness
- design for openness
- UNESCO Toolkit
- Andy Lane – integrated model
OTTER experience has led to CORRE framework
C – Content:
- Gathering: Analyse, look for gaps, reach agreement (written)
- Screening: type, editorial issues, language (cross-cultural), learning design
O – Openness
- Pedagogical: changes to context, goals, activities, outcomes, level, …
- Legal: 3rd party, acknowledged, copyright held, permission, cost, appropriate CC chosen
- Technical: formats, standalone, other tools required, potential to evolve.
RR – Reuse and repurpose
- internal validation: OER team/Academic partners/stakeholder carry out reality check
- externally: put online and get feedback from students and educators. (70 students giving feedback – 12 external, 18 educators interviewed)
E – Evidence
- Quantitative: Google analytics, views, downloads, etc.
- Qualitative: Questions about changes, difficulties, benefits, improvements.
Q: what is the resource required by the framework.
A: OTTER has allowed us to do this. Without this the resource implications.
Q: How to negotiate with faculties.
A: Built on existing connections – used a simple memorandum to reach agreement (not in legal terms).
