Remix OU study materials (competition)

June 6th, 2007

The Open University’s OpenLearn project is setting a challenge to educators worldwide to reuse and remix their study materials. The OpenLearn website was launched last year and gives free access to thousands of hours of materials from OU courses. Supported by an open-source virtual learning environment (Moodle), the materials are already a rich resource for current and aspiring higher education students; their real potential lies in their innovative use by course developers however. Published under a Creative Commons license, all materials can be downloaded, amended and reused – with the aim to inspire creativity, collaboration and cost reduction in course production to enable wider access to education for all.

The competition aims to create a showcase for innovative approaches in online education. Everyone entering has the chance to win some smart technology.
