Funded by JISC/HEA, the HEA Engineering Subject Centre are running a pilot programme to support Open Educational Resources.

The Engineering Subject Centre will work in partnership with a range of higher education (HE) engineering departments and professional bodies. The project will capture the technical, logistical and legal processes undertaken in both traditional and innovative ways to build expertise and provide guidance for future developments.
Partners will include HE institutions as well as further education (FE) institutions teaching at HE level in order to capture material encapsulating a broad range of teaching styles, educational settings and levels and will include resources for learners in the workplace...
