UKOU Open Content Initiative “ The philosophy of open access and sharing knowledge is a wonderful fit with the founding principles of The Open University and with the University’s very strong commitment to open educational access and widening participation. The University will be developing forms of open content e-learning which will reach less experienced learners and, we hope, encourage an appetite for further learning.” Professor Brenda Gourley Vice-Chancellor of The Open University

OU Stage 2 goals Utilise Moodle as the VLE platform; Develop two complementary sites: the Learning Space – a supported open learning site for learners; and the Lab Space – a supported open ‘sense-making’ site for creators Have 900 learning hours in the Learning Space for initial launch in October 2006 rising to 5400 hours at the end of two years; Make a further 2700 hours of material available within the Lab Space at the end of two years. Add a range of open source collaborative learning tools to the Lab Space devised by our Knowledge Media Institute.

Utilise Moodle as the VLE platform;

Develop two complementary sites:

the Learning Space – a supported open learning site for learners; and

the Lab Space – a supported open ‘sense-making’ site for creators

Have 900 learning hours in the Learning Space for initial launch in October 2006 rising to 5400 hours at the end of two years;

Make a further 2700 hours of material available within the Lab Space at the end of two years.

Add a range of open source collaborative learning tools to the Lab Space devised by our Knowledge Media Institute.

Learning Space Structure based on ‘read only’ content supplemented by informal learning tools in Moodle such as wikis, discussion groups, bookmarking, etc. Deliver through Moodle as resources plus activities Mix of web authored, audiovisual and print authored content as units of study Range of media asset types and activities Units of size 3 to 15 hours user engagement Inclusion of quality assured material from the Lab Space Sense-making tools
