‘They need to be very well constructed and focused on the specific stakeholder.’

‘To try to address the context of the stakeholder and the specific needs, and concerns and interests of each.’

‘How to reach people? How to make people aware of the guidelines?’

‘How these are structured clearly and made easily usable, and how are we going to get the end user aware of the resource and use it.'

Peter Sloep

75 minutes 10 seconds to 76 minutes 30 seconds

‘It really depends on the stakeholder what the guidelines are that you are going to provide. It will be different for independent learners than for students for instance.’

‘This question is going to be the hardest one to answer because there are so many possible different answers depending on the perspective from which you look.’

Patrick McAndrew

76 minutes 49 seconds to 79 minutes 21 seconds

‘Guidelines are almost by definition useless, they are things that don’t have to be followed, they don’t have to say everything.’

‘What is the vision you have got for the thing you are producing? What sort of impact are you trying to make?’

‘Is it about refreshing the image of what we mean by…OER. Is it about getting the concept of practices across?’

‘Guidelines are all very well but is it the thing that will give you the impact you want.’

Hans Põldoja

79 minutes 40 seconds to 89 minutes 45 seconds

‘I am sceptical about having guidelines…I don’t see teachers really reading guidelines.’

‘What impact do we want to have?’

‘The main challenge is to guide people to create these kinds of resources.’

‘Licence compatibility issues…open formats…understand there is no one tool for authoring.’

David Kernohan

81 minutes 32 seconds to 83 minutes 56 seconds

‘I am not certain necessarily guidelines…are what we need.’

‘Each of the issues that we have talked about comes down to argument. …What I would like the guidelines to be…are to give people tools to win this argument.’

‘Answers to the common arguments.’

Andy Lane 

84 minutes 6 seconds to 88 minutes 47 seconds

‘I am another one to criticise the use of the word guidelines.’

‘What you need to be focusing on is recommendations.’

‘Recommendations as to how can people change policies and practice.’
