With the title Creating a virtuous circle, this conference focuses on how we can build on the last ten years of investment in open educational resources and move to the creation of a virtuous circle of open educational practice? How to be a virtuous rather than a vicious circle and an open rather than a closed one.

Many institutions don’t have the ‘foresight’ to create their own in-house open online video archive/platforms so have to rely solely on external commercial channels like iTunes as their primary platform or video archive. Commercial media channels really should be secondary channels not primary. I’m a big fan of commercial channels but I don’t think colleges should be putting all its eggs into one commercial basket, all videos produced by the institution should be made available and accessible at all times to everyone and be free from commercial fees, conditions and advertising.

Why would you want to share some of your learning resources with the world? Here are some reasons - can you think of any more?
Check out the UAL ALTO project to find out more about sharing http://alto.arts.ac., as you can see from the logo at the the top of the page Process.Arts is part of the ALTO family
Becomes part of your portfolio of published work, as a teacher and as an art and design practitioner. Serves current students to support teaching and learning across the UAL A showcase for individual students and staff at the UAL for promoting our work, networking and attracting new students Helps students making well-informed application choices by providing windows into the world of the UAL = better retention and satisfaction rates Link with national and international communities of practice to create longer-term collaborations and partnerships Support development of collaborative learning design skills by developing the staff skills base in course authoring and delivery Freeing up time to concentrate on teaching rather than on the development and delivery of content. Reduce the repetitive parts of our work Sharing experiences - a positive professional development activity that helps in reflecting on our practice, which also facilitates accountability and aids in continuous improvement. A growing and sustainable collection of learning resources and digital assets across both private and public spaces - constitutes a valuable form of institutional 'memory' Advances institutional recognition and reputation that builds a sense of shared identity and unity while enhancing the international public service reputation of the UAL Encourage cross college/disciplinary collaboration by engendering a culture of openness, transparency and integrity Passing on subject knowledge and teaching expertise A driver for cultural change that can also help develop policy (e.g. IPR, Employment, CPD)
process.arts is being re-developed and as part of its move into a service at UAL, CLTAD will prepare users stories and use cases to support the development.

An animation providing information about Open Data Licensing. The OER IPR Support Project have developed this fabulous animation to introduce the importance of open data licensing in an engaging way - http://www.web2rights.com/OERIPRSupport/index.html - It was developed out of the UK OER Programme but informed by the work of several other areas including UK Discovery, Managing Research Data, the Strategic Content Alliance, and sharing XCRI course feeds. With thanks to the many people who helped in the storyboarding, scripting and feedback: particularly Phil Barker, Tony Hirst and Martin Hawskey.
