Yet another brick from the crumbling wall of 20th century learning is loosened today. To be replaced by an ambitious OTTER! We’re delighted to be part of finding out what happens when the old style non-accessible, carefully covetted and protected resources for learning are released into the great pool of shareable knowledge.

In a new world of learning, Open Educational Content, facilitated by new ideas on licensing, reuse and repurposing, is made free to use or share, and teachers and learners can share what they know. Of course we know it’s not easy. Of course we know there are challenges. Of course the technology needs testing. That’s what we’re going to do with colleagues across the University of Leicester.

Please come back often and see how wet we get.
