The Open, Transferable and Technology-enabled Educational Resources (OTTER) project will enable, pilot and evaluate systems and processes designed to enable individuals, teams and departments to release high quality open educational resources (OERs) for free access, reuse and repurposing by others, in perpetuity. OTTER will contribute a body of high quality OERs from 8 departments, and plan to encourage and support many others. Equivalent to 360 credits, these OERs will be free to access online, use, adapt and repurpose under an appropriate open licence, and will be valuable to academics, past, current and future learners, funding agencies and professional organisations in the relevant fields worldwide. OTTER will make extensive use of learning technologies and maximise the affordances of the JorumOpen platform and Leicester's institutional open source platform, Plone. OTTER will inform institutional and sector policy on the release of existing digital content as OERs. OTTER's deliverables and benefits will be disseminated widely across the institution, the sector and internationally well beyond the project's life.
