Goals

The goal of this project is to support university educators in the development and design of Open Educational Resources (OER). Originally, the main focus was on the admission processes for the life sciences & STEM fields. Due to the strong interdisciplinary interest, we extended out activities to include a much wider field of academic disciplines.

In addition to support services for educators, the accessibility of these materials should be secured for all university educators and education in Austria. The project will implement an prototypical web portal where educators can retrieve and access OER that their creators published in one of the attached archive systems according to the owner principle with a Creative Commons Licence and OER quality assurance. These materials are available for further use in self-education and teaching, and contribute to quality enhancement in teaching and education.
