The "Use" section
As indicated previously, "Use" could be merged into a "Learning Design" section. As it stands, the following thoughts spring to mind at first glance:
|Upload/import course materials into a course management system/virtual learning environment||Move to Share (for internal use) or would the term "Deploy" apply?|
|Packages and Metadata||Move to Share.|
|Syndicate materials through RSS/Atom feeds||Syndication and RSS should be covered under "Find" and "Share".|
|Integrating OERs in teaching and learning||This one belongs here :-). My first impression of the content: trying to be too clever. Dive into the story and give simple examples of using the resulting resource in a standard, traditional way, and in a more innovative blended social construction scenario. You can end the section with a discussion about the lack of evidence based guidelines and speculative opportunities for different approaches to learning/teaching. Most items in the numbered list are covered elsewhere already, or would fit in the proposed learning design section i.e. no. 6 "Remix ..." as it relates to the last paragraph).|
|Using Low bandwidth/mobile versions||Fine - remind us to revisit this one - more to say re mlearning and blended learning.|
|Evaluation||Fine - remind us to revisit this one too.|
|Accessibility When Using OER||Build into Evaluation (above)|
I'm still waiting on Wiley regarding the lifecycle, so I can't comment on moving things to "Find" or "Share."
>>Upload/import course materials into a course management system/virtual learning environment >>Move to Share (for internal use) or would the term "Deploy" apply?
I would be interested in shortening the term and may work "deploy" into it.
>>>Dive into the story and give simple examples of using the resulting resource in a standard, traditional way, and in a more innovative blended social >>>construction scenario.
I'm reluctant to do hypothetical stories because I fear they may come off as artificial. That's partly the impetus behind the User Stories sections; to provide actual voices from the OER community.
>>>Most items in the numbered list are covered elsewhere already, or would fit in the proposed learning design section i.e. no. 6 "Remix ..." as it >>>relates to the last paragraph).
I thought they would be a nice summation, and maybe something needs to be said to that effect, but I will delete if you still feel they are extraneous.
>>>Accessibility When Using OER >>>Build into Evaluation (above)
I could see building it into Evaluation, although it would break the symmetry with other sections (at least as presently constituted. I want to explain my approach to accessibility in the handbook. Typically in technical books there is an accessibility chapter, usually towards the back. With this document I wanted to have educators think about accessibility from beginning. Not necessarily as a dominating consideration in OER development, but as something to think about at each stage. So I'm a little reluctant, but not intractable, merged any accessibility section with another.
