TRACK OER - aims
Cloud created by:
10 October 2012
The TRACK OER project aims to investigate and demonstrate ways to track Open Educational Resources as they are reused. To do this it:
- Will develop open source code that will enable the embedding of tracking in downloaded content.
- Enhance existing software that allows monitoring of cut and paste actions on OER content.
- Validate the software through acceptance testing so that it can be applied to content on The Open University's LabSpace server.
In addition the project will lokk at ways that the system can be used by the OER community and describe possible uses and the tools that might enable take up of tracking.
