The CORRE 2.0 framework for OER production and release

The CORRE 2.0 framework provides an overview of the stages and processes that the OER project teams at the Universities of Leicester, Bath and Derby went through in the OTTER and OSTRICH projects ( and to produce and release OERs, and may be of use to project teams in other institutions wishing to do the same. The CORRE framework is a major element of the “Scaffold for Institutional Adoption and Implementation of OERs” (at, and should be used in conjunction with the detailed CORRE checklist and tracking sheets available at

The CORRE 2.0 diagram ( is based on the original CORRE workflow model from the OTTER project ( We have evidence that this model worked well for project teams who were converting existing teaching materials into OERs not only from the OSTRICH cascade partners, but also from various other JISC-funded OER projects (e.g. SCOOTER and DELILA). 

The CORRE model was updated and renamed CORRE 2.0 during the OSTRICH project, when project partners started developing OERs from scratch and found that the CORRE workflow needed to be modified to integrate OER processes into the curriculum design stage. CORRE 2.0 allows for the creation of new materials as well as transformation of existing materials into OERs. CORRE 2.0 therefore replaces the original version from the OTTER project.
The tasks identified in the CORRE 2.0 framework are not necessarily linked to specific roles within an institution. For example, intellectual property rights (IPR) clearance may be carried out by the academics, by a copyright librarian, or by a member of the OER project team. In the OER11 presentation, we demonstrated this by showing the CORRE model in its “plain vanilla” form and then colour-coding it for the different institutions to show how the same task might be performed by different individuals/ groups in each case. Updated versions of these “flavoured” CORRE models can be seen at
