The EVOLUTION project (Educational and Vocational Objects for Learning Using Technology In Open Networks) will facilitate access to a range of materials by the wider HE and FE communities. The project will review and update existing materials, check copyright, IPR and licensing, add appropriate metadata and repackage in a format suitable for uploading to JORUM OPEN. The materials designed to be re-used and re-purposed and this project will make not only the packaged content available but also the component parts of the materials. Therefore the project will upload component parts, including raw data files, to allow repackaging of materials for re-use and re-purposing. The project will create a guide to re-use of materials and will run a series of repackaging workshop for the HE sector. At institution level the project will embed the principles and processes required to facilitate release of Open Educational Resources. It will also update the basic repository currently used to access the materials.
