PROJECT NOW HOSTED ON THE OER UNIVERSITY PORTAL PAGE

About the project

Clouds n corn.jpg
Individuals are free to learn from OER hosted on the open web. The OER for Assessment and Credit for Students Project will provide opportunities for these OER learners who are interested in earning formal academic credit for their learning. This project will contribute to the design and development of the OER university (now OER universitas).

This OER initiative will align with the community service and outreach missions of the formal education sector. Through our community service mission we will open pathways for OER learners to earn formal academic credit and pay reduced fees for assessment and credit. In this way the OER movement can contribute to addressing the global demand for higher education where traditional delivery models are unable to respond to the need for post-secondary education.

This project aims to:
  • Collaboratively develop:
    • a logic model including inputs, activities, outputs and impact framework for the initiative;
    • a project and implementation plan derived from the logic model.
  • Implement one or more credentials based on OER resources for piloting and refining the model across multiple institutions.
  • Build a network of formal education education institutions, OER agencies, governments and international agencies to contribute to the incremental development and refinement of the OER university thus nurturing the evolution of a sustainable international OER ecosystem.
