Suggestions for other forms of institutional acknowledgement
Suggestion for an alternative term for the initial resource: Course outline. This avoids ambiguity of terms like 'introduction', is descriptive of what it is, and a reminder for creators to keep it concise.
That's a good point about keeping the resource concise.
Initial reflection on the concept of "Course outline" is that for many learners this may not fully describe what the resource is intended to contain. The inclusion of assessment model, assignments etc seems to be more than what a course outline would suggest.
Institutions would have the freedom to adapt and modify the assessment and assignments for the local context -- but I think a generic resource which includes these components would be useful for OERu learners.
The majority opinion so far is "Course guide" -- lets see how this evolves.
