To make some of The Open University’s distance learning materials freely accessible in an international web-based open content environment and, in so doing, to advance open content delivery method technologies by:

Deploying leading-edge learning management tools for learner support;

Encouraging the creation of non-formal collaborative learning communities; and

Enhancing international research-based knowledge about modern pedagogies for higher education.

OpenLearn targets Utilise Moodle as the VLE platform and employ Structured authoring tool for tagging content; Develop two complementary sites: the LearningSpace the LabSpace Have 900 learning hours in the LearningSpace for initial launch in October 2006 rising to 5400 hours at the end of two years; Make a further 8100 hours of material available within the LabSpace at the end of two years. Add a range of open source collaborative learning tools to the LabSpace devised by our Knowledge Media Institute.

Develop two complementary sites:

the LearningSpace

the LabSpace

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