 flock of ostriches


  • Enable the partners to implement sustainable OER development processes by transferring the lessons learned and deliverables from OTTER and adapting them as appropriate to their own institutional approaches and cultures;
  • Brief stakeholders at partner institutions on a range of key issues associated with OER development, licensing and release to inform choices and policy;
  • Apply and refine OTTER’s CORRE quality and evaluation framework for OERs at the two cascade partners;
  • Release a minimum of 100 credits’ worth of materials in the chosen priority areas at each institution within the 12 months of the project, deposited into the project repository and JorumOpen;
  • Provide a cascade model with associated guidance to enable partners to sustain the production and release of OERs beyond the duration of OSTRICH;
  • Offer practical and highly reusable guidance on designing for openness;
  • Facilitate the elaboration of draft policy documents for consideration by partner institutions;
  • Evaluate the interventions;
  • Generate opportunities for the dissemination of the OERs and associated findings within and beyond the partnership;
  • Promote further collaboration opportunities on OER issues across the sector.
