Key decisions and action items

  1. Reviewed the action items from the previous meeting
    • Reviewed the draft graphics produced by the artist and agreed that the "soccer ball" implementation of the 5-level framework does not adequately convey the hierarchy which is an important concept. Wayne will arrange for The "soccer ball" graphic proposal to be replaced by a "modernised" version of the original hierarchical typology. The SMEs were happy with the funnel metaphor graphics.
    • Confirmed that the other items have been addressed
  2. Reviewed the state of progress of all the micro courses
    • Agreed to delete the Eco Ego image as we are unable to source an openly licensed version
    • Reviewed the detailed estimation of notional learning hours for CSFF101 and agreed that course workload is on target.
    • Agreed that Carol can use professional judgement as an experienced designer for the workload estimations of the remaining courses without the need for a detailed working hour calculation. Wayne and team confirmed that the remaining courses fall within the anticipated workload requirements.
    • Agreed to accept the recommendations for specifying the preceding CSF course as a pre-requisite for study.
    • Agreed that Steve will coordinate and liaise with the SME team to attend to the query links listed in the agenda above.
  3. Noted that Simon had removed the incorrect course reference in the welcome video
    • Agreed that Steve will liaise with Simon to crop the welcome video to remove the CSF101 specific instructions so that the welcome video can be reused for reuse CSF102 - 104.
  4. Noted the range of OERu marketing collateral that can be used to promote the CSF courses both nationally and internationally.
  5. Demonstrated how micro-courses are listed on the website.
    • Agreed to provide the team with editing access to the CMS to finalise the course listings, bios etc on the site.
  6. Agreed to provide access to a small cohort of learners to the current materials by the end of July with the understanding that learners will be advised that this is a pre-launch version. A forum will be set up these learners to report any broken links or components which are not working properly.
    • Wayne will liaise with the SMEs to find a suitable time to provide an orientation of how to use the course from an instructors perspective.
    • Agreed to target a prototype version later in the academic year with a cohort of local learners before the international launch of the course in 2017 as part of the OERu 1st year of study.
