We are designing an open subject to deliver through UOW in Wollongong.
I am trying to keep the design as open and reusable as possible, but there are some elements which are specific to UOW.
What would be the convention for styling such sections? Is there an ID Device which makes it clear to the re-user that it is a local-context component?
Would it help to define the course in terms of more general learning outcomes, specifying that the lecturer/tutor was free to use local examples in the teaching. In our programme definitions we specify learning outcomes and an “indicative” syllabus that can be varied providing that the learning outcomes are achieved.
I believe you can set email notification options in your preferences.
For the purposes of OERu courses, we cannot link to password protected materials. These are not OER. As the OERu is an OER collaboration, we are committed to open access materials.
If UOW is planning to run an OERu course in parallel mode, the links to password protected materials could be listed in your local LMS. In your course design, think about these reuse contexts and structure the pages accordingly so that OERu learners don’t have to rely on closed resources to support their learning.
