Possible Procedures for streamlining nomination of OERu courses
Wow you are working ahead of the phases for commentary on different sections of the strategic plan. At this stage we're reviewing the main strategic goals.
In the OERu model, courses which are nominated must be mapped to formal credit towards a credential at the institution nominating the course. In this way we ensure that OERu learners can receive formal academic credit.
Designing for the OERu delivery model is important and we have a working group who will be focusing on minimum quality standards for the OERu.
Hi, 1. The Content developers need to be motivated to create courses on OERu and say for example a faculty with sizable student access should start with creating part of the course. For nomination of the course the course concept can be shared with experts in database with OERu which can give a "go ahead " and the course can be launched.
2. I presume every partner institute would also contribute to two or more courses which by default would be the best ones offered by the partner institute.
3. Further OERu should come out with a credit scheme for " good content experts" who may or may not from a institute and the OERu expert team finds content appropriate in terms of knowledge , pedagogy and assessment strategy.
