JISC/Higher Education Academy programme

JISC and the Higher Education Academy are collaborating on the Open Educational Resources programme, aiming to support UK higher education institutions in sharing their teaching and learning resources freely online across the world. These resources showcase the high quality of UK higher education and our vision is that they will be used, reused and repurposed globally. Such resources might include full courses, course materials, complete modules, videos, assessments, tests, simulations, worked examples or software, and all resources are to be made available via JorumOpen. The programme will support universities and colleges in exploring processes and policies, intellectual property rights, cultural issues, technical requirements and data management issues.


Pilot Projects


hefce logoThe Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) has provided an initial £5.7 million of funding for pilot projects which will be delivered in partnership with JISC and the Higher Education Academy. The 29 pilot projects (April 2009 to April 2010) will explore how we can expand the open availability and use of free, high quality online educational resources.


This infoKit builds upon the work carried out in the JISC-funded Good Intentions: improving the evidence base in support of sharing learning materials report (2008)
