Humbox: a different concept of openness in OERs UK?
My own activity in the Humbox and its impact in L&T
• Spanish Politics, including political decentralisation and history
• Spanish poetry, Portuguese Literature and poetry translation
• Motivation in Language Learning
• Autonomous Learning
Types of resources:
Learning activities for students and colleagues:
• Simulations (mainly in politics, but also in literature and history)
• Interviews (on politics, on poetry, on autonomous learning and on language learning motivation)
• Spanish Language Autonomous learning sheets
• Presentations (written and in video)
• Word documents and pdf.
• Video files
• Powerpoint presentations
What sharing should we encourage in a repository?
Most of the above activities do have educational value for someone out there, as much as they can have for their current users or potentially more, especially if key supporting information on how they have been used is provided. Conventional materials, if they are successful, are also shareable.
Besides, we can also share more simple learning objects.
In any case, it is up to each user to make the most of the uploaded learning objects, no matter their level of “granularity”.
Openness in the Humbox
Openness = Practitioner inclusiveness
Bigger community of sharing = + user interaction
Consequences of the direction taken when creating the Humbox:
- More emphasis on developing a teachers-led repository
- Less emphasis on institutional presence
- More emphasis on releasing existing resources at the initial stages
- Variable granularities –Learning Objects –“Little OERs” (Hoyle’s classification from Weller)
A repository that welcomes everyone and welcomes current practice.
The project does not isolate practice.
Impact in L&T
By exposing more resources to the public and by engaging with more colleagues in many different ways (look, upload or reuse) we increase the chances of positive “cross pollination”.
Quality of resources:
We must rely on user education, user interaction and user review and peer-review.
Let the “invisible hand of the community” operate.
