SPIDER's Background

Beyond Distance established a reputation for its work in Open Educational Resources (OERs) through the OTTER (Open, Transferable, Technology-enhanced Educational Resources) project from May 2009 to April 2010, in which over 430 credits' worth of learning materials were published as OERs, in 13 subject areas including Politics, Law, and Genetics. The website for this repository is http://www.le.ac.uk/oer.

A major outcome of the OTTER project was a workflow and quality framework called CORRE, which includes step-by-step procedures for ensuring that there is no breach of third-party copyright, and transforming and formatting materials to make them reusable and customisable by other academics and students in different contexts. Beyond Distance is now leading the way for other institutions to apply the knowledge gained from piloting CORRE at the University of Leicester during the OTTER project.
