Quality process


How do you ensure the quality of OER?

Using an established quality enhancement process, we will help staff convert their teaching materials into OER, add suitable metadata and release them into relevant open repositories, such as JORUM.

Examples of two established quality enhancement processes are shown as follows: 

CORRE framework

The CORRE framework is an established process for transforming teaching materials into OERs. The framework is developed by the University of Leicester as part of the OTTER project.
CORRE consists of four stages. Content stage focuses on gathering existing teaching materials and screening for a brief assessment of the learning context, learning design, media, structure and language used in the materials. In the Openness stage, issues to do with copyright clearance and technical transformation will be dealt with. Re-use and Re-purpose is about reality checking based on feedback from stakeholders regarding the OERs in terms of their fitness for reuse and repurposing. Evidence is concerned with assessing the value and usefulness of OER when released.

TIGER process

The TIGER process is developed as part of the TIGER project, led by the University of Northampton, in collaboration with the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. TIGER developed and released OER for Interprofessional Education (IPE) in Health and Social Care.

The TIGER process builds on the CORRE framework, and also includes key stages such as content collection, screening, copyright clearance, technical transformation, validation, release and evaluation.
